AWARD RECIPIENT: Signe Wilkinson

AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: Philadelphia Daily News

AWARD HONORED WORK: Best cartoons on international affairs

Signe Wilkinson wades into the big story and emerges with fresh ideas, delivering an alternative take on events explored by others. Her original treatment provokes thinking on many of the most important issues of the day. The missile targeting terrorists also targets people living near them; the search for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 is made even more difficult by an ocean full of floating junk. Signe is often irreverent – and funny.
