Political Cartoonists Solidarity Award 2022

In light of the horror that has accompanied the Russian invasion of Ukraine we decided to create a new award.  The political cartoon awards event marks the important contribution made by cartoonists in holding the powerful to account and nowhere has this been more important than in exposing Putin’s aggression against the Ukrainian people. This award was signed by all the cartoonists in attendance on the night and was presented in person to Vladimir Kazanevsky in Paris by our Managing Director, Ben Atfield.
