Adam Zyglis wins 2015 Pulitzer Prize

Putin Doll

Today the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning was announced. The winner this year goes to Adam Zyglis of the Buffalo News. You can see his cartoon entries over at Pulitzer.org.

Adam has had a tremendous year. He was awarded the Aronson Award for Cartooning with a Conscience just last week. He was also the recipient of the Berryman Award in 2013.

Finalists this year are:

Kevin Kallaugher of the Baltimore Sun. Judges response: “For simple, punchy cartoons with a classic feel lampooning the hypocrisy of not just his subjects but also his readers.”

Dan Perkins, drawing as Tom Tomorrow, of Daily Kos. The judges notes, “For cartoons that create an alternate universe — an America frozen in time whose chorus of conventional wisdom is at odds with current reality.”
