Kallaugher most recently won the OPC’s Best Cartoon award for his work in 2020, in which judges said he “seems like a cartoonist transported from a bygone era, while still creating compelling work that resonates with today’s audience.”

Rogers won the 2012 Best Cartoon Award for his work in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and before that won the award for work in 1999.

Chappatte won the award for his work in The New York Times in 2018 and 2015, and won the 2011 award for cartoons in the International Herald Tribune.
