The John Locher Memorial Award for Young Political Cartoonists Accepting Submissions


The Locher Award is a contest for aspiring cartoonists, ages 18-25, whose work demonstrates both clear opinions and strong artistry on political and social topics. Single panel, multi-panel, and animated editorial cartoons and comics will be accepted. Both students and non-students are eligible to submit.


The prestigious award includes a $1,000 cash prize and an all-expense-paid trip to the annual convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Unlike many awards, there is no application fee.

Deadline for submissions is June 15, 2019.
