10th anniversary of Sunshine Week set for March 15-21

The American Society of News Editors has announced this year’s Sunshine Week will be March 15-21. They’re also asking editorial cartoonists to contribute cartoons on the topic of open and transparent government to be used in the week’s celebration. Cartoons will be used in a gallery on the Sunshine Week website as well as part of the Sunshine Week toolkit (material publishers, bloggers, non-profit organizations can use for that week only to promote Sunshine Week).

Submissions should be sent to sunshineweek@asne.org. Questions about participating or how the cartoons will be used should be directed to Deb Gersh Hernandez dghernandez@rcfp.org.
