Abecor Wins Courage in Cartooning Award

Last week CARTOONISTS RIGHTS presented the 2023 Robert Russell Courage in Cartooning Award to Abecor at a private ceremony, held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Cartoonists Rights International Network awarded the biennial Robert Russell Courage in Cartooning Award to Abel Bellido Córdova (Abecor) who continues his crusade against corruption in spite of threats of death to himself and harm to his family.

The Cartoonists Rights organization has details.

Abecor is the 40th cartoonist that our organization was recognised with an award. The last recipient from the Americas was Nicaraguan Pedro X. Molina in 2018, and he was on hand in Washington to congratulate his colleague.
