Time is Running Out!
Time is running out to nominate a cartoonist for the 2013 Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning! Nominations will be accepted up until midnight EST February 28, 2013.
Each year CRNI gives its Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning to a cartoonist in great danger or who has demonstrated exceptional courage in the exercise of free speech rights. In other words, each year we give a Courage Award to a cartoonist who is in danger for merely expressing his or her free speech rights. We do not award any cartoonists who advocate violence or hate.
Each year our Board of Directors choses the recipient of the Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning from the nominated cartoonists. Anyone can nominate a candidate for the Award. And we strongly encourage you to nominate a cartoonist in danger that you learned about from our website or from somewhere else. You can nominate a cartoonist on the front lines of free speech by simply writing a letter or an email to:
Dr. Robert Russell
Cartoonists Rights Network International
P.O. Box 7272
Fairfax Station, VA 22039
In your letter or email please give the name of the cartoonist you believe deserves consideration for the Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning and a brief explanation supporting your nomination. Nominations for the 2013 Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning will be accepted up until midnight EST February 28, 2013.
