Locher Award Deadline Extended to July 15

The July 1st deadline for the Locher Award has been changed to July 15, 2022.

The AAEC’s John Locher Memorial Award is now accepting submissions from aspiring editorial cartoonists for 2022.

Single panel, multi-panel, and animated editorial cartoons and comics will be accepted from cartoonists, ages 18-25, whose work demonstrates both clear opinions and strong artistry on political and social topics. Click here for details: http://locheraward.org/

The deadline to enter is Friday, July 15, 2022.

The prestigious award includes a $1,000 cash prize and an all-expense-paid trip to this year’s AAEC Convention.

The Association of American Editorial Cartoonists explains:

[Editor’s note: Thanks in part to all the news over the last half of June, we know cartoonists might be, umm, a bit distracted. So the Locher Award is extending the deadline to submit entries to this year’s contest to FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2022.]
