From Tammany Hall, robber barons and the sinking of The Maine to Vietnam, Watergate and the Lewinsky scandal, editorial cartoonists have exalted, lambasted, praised and skewered the rich, the powerful and the foolish.
Since the history of newspapers, cartooning has been a rich and vital contribution to American political commentary.
With the advent of news on the web and new design technologies, who will carry on that tradition?
Washingtonpost.com is looking for the next star of cartoon satire – a “Herblock” for the digital age.
We’re proud to announce the 2005 Washingtonpost.com “Editorial Shorts” Digital Animation Competition.
Can you use the emerging tools of digital animation to be the new voice of American satire? —Editorial Shorts: Digital Animation Competition (Washington Post)
