2021 AAEC Convention Set for October 8 & 9

The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists have set the dates for their 2021 Convention.


October 8 & 9, 2021 will be the dates for the convention. Like last year it will be virtual.

From the AAEC:

Join the editorial cartoonists of the AAEC for our virtual convention Oct. 8-9, 2021. Like everyone else this year, we’re hunkering down online. Again.

We’ll kick things off Friday evening with a reception for Association members and our annual awards presentation. Then, on Saturday, Oct. 9, we’re throwing the online doors open to the public for a day of live panels and discussions with some of the biggest names in political cartooning today.

Give ’em a few weeks and we ‘ll have a better idea of guests and happenings.

Look for a complete schedule of events and guests speakers after Labor Day.


The first half of October looks to be busy convention season.

The weekend before AAEC’s convention is Cartoon Crossroads Columbus.


The weekend after the AAEC Convention is the NCSFest and its attendant Reuben Awards.


October will close with the centennial celebration of Bill Mauldin‘s birth on the 29th.
