Tjeerd Royaards Wins Dutch Cartoon Award

CM editor and cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards has won the Inktspotprijs, a prestigious cartoon award in the Netherlands given to the best cartoon published in the previous year ('Inktspot' is a pun on the Dutch words for ink (inkt) and mockery (spot)). The award was given to Royaards for Good Migrant, Bad Migrant a cartoon that was first published on Cartoon Movement. The cartoon, about the French illegal migrant that saved a child, went viral last May.


A section of the 100 best Dutch cartoons, including the winning cartoon, can be seen in an exhibition that is simultaneously showing on three locations in the Netherlands: the central library in The Hague, the main library in Amsterdam, and the Limburgs Museum.

The exhibition also features work from CM contributors Jean Gouders, Benjamin Kikkert, Emanuele Del Rosso, Moshe Gilula, Gezienus, Hajo, TRIK, Maarten Wolterink and Bart van Leeuwen.

If you can’t take it to one of the exhibition, the selection of 100 cartoons can also be viewed in an online catalogue here.
