Ruben Bolling is this year’s winner of The Clifford K. and James T. Berryman Award for Editorial Cartoons, the annual award presented by National Press Foundation.
The judges cited “Bolling’s mordant wit, superior artwork and inventive delivery,” in his weekly strip Tom the Dancing Bug. “The cartoonist parodies well-known American cultural memes, from Charles M. Schultz’s Peanuts to Richard Scarry’s children’s books to The Matrix.”
Cartoonist Tim Campbell was the runner up for his 4-part series that illustrated middle schooler’s concerns over COVID-19. The cartoon interviews appeared on KidsPost and were distributed to schools nationwide.
