AWARD RECIPIENT: Patrick Chappatte
AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: The New York Times
AWARD HONORED WORK: Best cartoons on international affairs
Chappatte showed a consistent level of high-quality visual journalism in his body of work. Graphically well-composed, his cartoons are clear, stark and direct, sometimes using one word, sometimes none at all to create an immediate impact for the reader. He is a master at capturing the current international political climate in a way that leaves the reader somewhere between laughing and crying.
