David Killen, “The Cartoonist’s Cartoon Editor”

October 15, 2015 in General


David Killen at the PCO presentation

The recently retired Prospect Magazine Cartoon Editor was presented with an award by the PCO Chairman Bill Stott at a small but perfectly formed ceremony in London. The inscribed glass memento was proffered on behalf of the PCO membership, reflecting their thanks for David’s outstanding contribution to cartooning.

In his eight years as Cartoon Editor at Prospect David proved to be a champion of quality cartooning, all the while managing to be unfailingly polite and always providing prompt acknowledgement of receipt of submissions. David was equally swift in informing contributors whether their work had been accepted or rejected, traits that are greatly appreciated by cartoonists.

David’s has earned the respect of cartoonists everywhere and the PCO were delighted to recognise his efforts with this presentation.

We wish David a long and happy retirement in Italy, his newly adopted homeland.

  1. There’s an idea; a PCO kite-mark! Wonder how many editors/publications would fail to make the grade?

  2. And would they care ?
