Cartoonist Nate Beeler of the Washington Examiner has been awarded the 2008 Clifford K. Berryman and James T. Berryman Award for Editorial Cartooning, the National Press Foundation announced.
The Berryman judges said they were ?taken with Nate Beeler’s technical skill and wry sense of humor. His grasp of politics is excellent, which is particularly important when you’re drawing for an audience of Washington insiders. Beeler is a new talent in one of the most popular forms of journalism,? a release said.
The Berryman award ? and six other major prizes ? will be presented at the National Press Foundation?s 26th Annual Awards Dinner on Feb. 10, 2009, at the Hilton Washington Hotel.
