A big congrats to Adam Zyglis, this year’s pick for the Overseas Press Club prize! The staff cartoonist for The Buffalo News was named the winner of the “Award Formerly Known as Thomas Nast” by @opcofamerica for his international political cartoons.
The judges noted “An impressive caricaturist, Zyglis is the kind of cartoonist who would have to be jailed immediately if he lived abroad. That’s the standard by which all great political cartoonists should be judged.”
It should come as no surprise that this year’s OPCA award ceremony has already been cancelled and will be held, uh, later. 2021 anyone?

And congrats to Politico‘s Matt Wuerker, who was cited as the runner-up for “Best print or digital graphic journalism, including cartoons, on international affairs.”
