Campus Progress Cartoonist Honored as Pulitzer Finalist
Matt Bors, a nationally syndicated cartoonist whose work has appeared on CampusProgress.org since its launch, was named a finalist in the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning this week.
An Oregon-based cartoonist, Bors is one of two finalists in the category. The other, Jack Ohman, produces daily cartoons from The Oregonian. The Pulitzer for Editorial Cartooning was awarded to Matt Wuerker of POLITICO, the first for the publication, and was accompanied by a $10,000 prize.
The Pulitzer selection committee said Bors is notable for his “pungent work outside the traditional style of American cartooning.”
Last month, Bors was also awarded the Herblock Prize, which recognizes “distinguished examples of editorial cartooning” in the tradition of Herbert Herblock, a three-time Pulitzer winner whose cartoons often took a liberal slant.
“Campus Progress is one of my earliest clients,” Bors said at the time of the Herblock announcement. “I have been published on CP longer than any online outlet outside of my own website.”
