Editorial cartoonist Matt Davies is this year’s winner of the Headliner Award, one of the oldest continuous-awarded journalism prizes. The judges had this to say about the Newsday staff cartoonist: “In a field crowded with purse-lipped presidents and ‘clusters’ of guns, Matt Davies’ entry stood out for its out-of-the-box approach and putting politics in our homes: Screen time, global warming, vaccines and school shootings were all set in the everyday. His artistic style is smart and sophisticated. His cartoons leave you impressed, enraged and included.”
