Buffalo News cartoonist Adam Zyglis wins 2015 Pulitzer Prize



For a distinguished cartoon or portfolio of cartoons, characterized by originality, editorial effectiveness, quality of drawing and pictorial effect, published as a still drawing, animation or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000) is awarded to Adam Zyglis of The Buffalo News, who used strong images to connect with readers while conveying layers of meaning in a few words.

Finalists

Also nominated as finalists in this category were: Kevin Kallaugher of the Baltimore Sun for simple, punchy cartoons with a classic feel lampooning the hypocrisy of not just his subjects but also his readers;



and Dan Perkins, drawing as Tom Tomorrow, of Daily Kos for cartoons that create an alternate universe -- an America frozen in time whose chorus of conventional wisdom is at odds with current reality.
