The International Editorial Cartoon Award returns for 2022 after a Covid hiatus. Patrick Chappatte and the Freedom Cartoonists Foundation will announce the winner on World Press Freedom Day, May 3, with an online presentation and live panel discussion with the two 2021 Nobel Peace Prize winners, journalists Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov. The award returns in conjunction with an in-person exhibit by cartoonist Quai Wilson throughout the month of May on the shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland.
The Foundation’s “Kofi Annan Courage in Cartooning Award” will be presented at noon on May 3 in a free online presentation celebrating freedom of the press and editorial cartooning. [update: the event has reached its maximum number of participants and registration has since been closed].
