GWU to Host Country’s Leading Cartoonists

On Sept. 14 and 15, George Washington University will celebrate the political cartoon by hosting the nation’s leading cartoonists. “The event features cartoonists of every political stripe and bent, including ‘new breed’ online satirists, traditional lampoonists and Pulitzer Prize-winners,” a release states.

During the two-day event, The Cartoonist Rights Network International will give the 2012 Courage in Editorial Cartooning Award to Syria’s Ali Ferzat and to Aseem Trivedi of India. TIME named Ferzat one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Pictured here is a cartoon by Ferzat.
