Behind the Lines: The Year's Best Cartoons 2004 was drawn from the Museum's annual political cartooning competition. Now in its eighth year, this competition has generated a series of exhibitions and provided a lasting record of Australian politics over the last decade.

Behind the Lines 2004 was originally on show at the National Museum of Australia in 2005. The exhibition also toured nationally.
