Michael Ramirez Wins OPC Cartoon Award

Michael Ramirez was honored with the Overseas Press Club of America (OPC) Cartoon Award (formerly The Thomas Nast Award) for his efforts in 2021.

Michael’s trophy case already contains two Pulitzer Prizes and
the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award as Cartoonist of the Year.

The Judges’ Statement:

Michael Ramirez masterly employs the full arsenal available to the visual satirist. It is rare to find a cartoonist who deftly creates both dark moods and light humor with such skill and intelligence. His work effectively eviscerates sacred cows and makes us laugh, even as we sometimes grumble.

The full list of award winners are at the OPC website here.

They will be honored April 21 at a dinner in New York.
