Hamshahri (Persian: همشهری‎ ′Fellow citizen′) is a major national Iranian Persian-language newspaper published by the Municipality of Tehran, and founded by Gholamhossein Karbaschi. It is the first coloured daily newspaper in Iran and has over 60 pages of classified advertisement, and is priced at 1000 Iranian rials. Currently, the newspaper is distributed within the limits of Tehran municipality. It has a daily circulation of over 400,000 copies, which is on par with major American daily newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe, and Chicago Tribune.

ContentsHamshahri and Khatami's electionHamshahri Building in Karaj-Tehran road.

In 1997's Iranian presidential election, Hamshahri newspaper, then run by former mayor of Tehran, Gholamhossein Karbaschi, was accused by conservatives of supporting Mohammad Khatami. This was seen as illegal, as papers receiving government subsidy were forbidden to take sides in the elections. The issue eventually led to Karbaschi being put on trial on grounds of embezzlement and was sentenced to time in prison. During Khatami's second term, Tehran press court ruled that the newspaper can only be distributed inside Tehran.

International Holocaust Cartoon Competition Main article: Iran Holocaust Cartoon Contest

On 6 February 2006, Farid Mortazavi, graphics editor of Hamshahri, announced the International Holocaust Cartoon Competition, a cartoon contest to denounce what it called 'Western hypocrisy on freedom of speech', alleging that "it is impossible in the West to joke upon or even discuss certain topics related to Judaism, such as the Holocaust, and the pretexts for the creation of Israel.". The contest ended on 1 November 2006, and Abdellah Derkaoui, a Moroccan cartoonist claimed the first prize. The event was denounced by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, the Israeli foreign ministry, Reporters Without Borders, the Anti-Defamation League and other parties.

Temporary banning

The newspaper was temporarily banned from publication on 23–24 November 2009, after it published a picture from a temple of the Bahá'í Faith which is banned in Iran.
