KAL Wins Overseas Press Club Cartooning Award

The Overseas Press Club of America announced today that Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher
has been named the winner of their annual cartoon award.

Cartoons

THE BEST CARTOON AWARD

Best print or digital graphic journalism, including cartoons, on international affairs

Sponsor: Daimler

Kevin Kallaugher (pen name KAL)

Judges: Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher seems like a cartoonist transported from a bygone era, while still creating compelling work that resonates with today’s audience. His impeccable pen and ink cross-hatching and weaponized bobble-headed caricatures might look at home on newspaper editorial pages of a century ago, which seems fitting since that was the last time we saw a global pandemic on the scale of COVID-19.

According to the OPC:

Veteran cartoonist Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher joined some select company with his fifth career OPC Award for Best Cartoon as his crow quill found favorite subjects in China, Vladimir Putin, climate change and deadly conspiracies. Only nine journalists have more than five career OPC awards.

KAL’s reaction:

This is part of the prestigious series of journalism awards bestowed by the OPC each year. It is a great honor to be recognized along with an amazing slew of distinguished group of journalists, photographers and filmmakers.

KAL presents his winning portfolio at KALtoons.

Congratulations to KAL on this prestigious honour; an excellent choice and so well-deserved from the hardest working, most dedicated, and prolific political renderer of our time. Kudos Kevin!
