Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – April 24, 2013
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial cartoonist Rob Rogers has won the Thomas Nast Award, given by the Overseas Press Club for excellence in cartooning on international affairs.
Mr. Rogers’ entry included cartoons on Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the civil war in Syria and the tweets of Pope Benedict XVI.
The judges said, “According to his editors, Rogers ‘enrages’ and ‘infuriates’ some readers in Pittsburgh. The OPC Committee presumes he delights many more with his deft application of humor to serious subjects from around the globe. He executes the cartoonist’s mission: to inform, entertain and spark discussion on world events.”
