On June 2, the awards were announced for the 13th edition of World Press Cartoon in Portugal. We are extremely proud that a number of our cartoonists were among the prize winners, most notably Italian cartoonist Marilena Nardi, who received the Grand Prize. She is the first woman to receive this honor.
Other winners from the Cartoon Movement network include Luc Descheemaeker who won first prize in the category Caricature, and Cau Gomez who received second prize in the category Editorial Cartoon. In the category Gag Cartoon Mello won second prize and Fadi Abou Hassan won third prize. This year was the first year that cartoons appearing in online publications were allowed, and we are extra proud that the cartoon by Fadi Abou Hassan was one published on Cartoon Movement.
Congrats to the winners! To see them all, visit the WPC website.
