6th Annual Studio Prize
The Slate Book Review and The Center for Cartoon Studies are proud to announce the sixth annual Cartoonist Studio Prize!
Each year the Cartoonist Studio Prize is awarded to two cartoonists whose work exemplifies excellence in cartooning. It aspires to celebrate the best work in the medium. Both established creators and new voices are encouraged to submit. (Last year’s winners: Eleanor Davis and Christina Tran.) The creators of two exceptional comics will be awarded $1,000 each. Winners will be selected by Slate’s Jacob Brogan, the faculty and students of The Center for Cartoon Studies (represented by Kevin Czap), and this year’s guest judge: Andrew Farago of San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum.
