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.

Announcing the Winners of the 2016 Cartoonist Studio Prize
Congratulations to our two winners, who each receive $1,000 and, of course, eternal glory, and join our previous winners: Richard McGuire and Winston Rowntree; Taiyo Matsumoto and Emily Carroll; and Noelle Stevenson and Chris Ware.
The winner of the Best Print Comic prize is Carol Tyler for her momentous Soldier’s Heart: The Campaign to Understand My WWII Veteran Father (Fantagraphics), a collection of Tyler’s three mournful, angry, beautiful memoirs about her dad, Chuck Tyler, his experiences on the European front in World War 2, and the PTSD—or “soldier’s heart”—that affected not just the rest of his life but his daughter Carol’s as well.
The winner of the Best Web Comic prize is Boulet for his characteristically witty and madcap comic, “I Want to Believe.” The French cartoonist is a three-time nominee in this category and this year came away with the prize.
