A big congratulations to cartoonist Masha Zhdanova (@mashazart), this year’s winner of the John Locher Memorial Award. The jury noted “her short comics lend insight into authoritarianism and provide intimate viewpoints from the war in Ukraine.”
Congrats too to Alexandra Bowman (@scripta_bene) for being named Runner-up for the editorial cartoonist award. Bowman is a recent graduate of Georgetown and the creator of The Hilltop Show, the university’s political comedy show.
This year’s Locher Award will be presented at the AAEC convention during the CXC Festival in Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 6-9.
