Philadelphia Inquirer editorial cartoonist Tony Auth won the Thomas Nast Prize, which has been awarded periodically to American and German cartoonists since 1978.
Auth will receive the prize Dec. 8 in Landau, Germany, where the Thomas Nast Foundation is based and where legendary cartoonist Thomas Nast was born in 1840.
Previous U.S. winners of the prize were Jim Borgman, Draper Hill, David Levine, Jeff MacNelly, Jim Morin, Pat Oliphant, and Paul Szep.
Auth joined the Inquirer in 1971 and won the Pulitzer Prize five years later. His work is distributed by Universal Press Syndicate.
