Matt Bors has been named this year’s John Fischetti Editorial Cartoon competition winner given by the Columbia College Chicago.
Bors’ winning image portrays two men sitting outside a trailer listening to a radio account reporting that for the first time in the United States, children of color will be the majority. “Second,” says the Native American man.
“I often work in multiple panels, but sometimes all you need is one,” said Bors who recalled seeing and hearing panicked reports on the birth of non-white babies outpacing white ones. “No one in the media noted the fact that white people have only been a majority in North America for a relatively short time. Within a day it had become one of the most popular cartoons I’d ever done.”
Matt draws for Medium.com, NSFWcorp Magazine and is syndicated through Universal Uclick.
San Diego Union Tribune cartoonist Steve Breen and Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle were named as honorable mentions.
