The 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning has been awarded to Mark Fiore of sfgate.com, the San Francisco Chronicle Web site. This marks the first time the prize has been won by a cartoonist who only produces animated web-based cartoons. The Pulitzers, set up to honour excellence in American journalism have been awarded since 1917. The Washington Post have an interview with Fiore here.
In other US cartoon-related award news, the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award Nominees have been revealed. Thanks to Alan Gardner at the Daily Cartoonist for the tips.
