The AAEC/John Locher Memorial Award is accepting submission from young cartoonists beginning today, May 1st, 2019. Click here for complete details.
The Locher Award is a contest for aspiring cartoonists, ages 18-25, whose work demonstrates both clear opinions and strong artistry on political and social topics. Single panel, multi-panel, and animated editorial cartoons and comics will be accepted. Both students and non-students are eligible to submit.
The prestigious award includes a $1,000 cash prize and an all-expense-paid trip to the annual convention of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Unlike many awards, there is no application fee.
The AAEC/John Locher Memorial Award was founded in 1986 by members of the AAEC. They felt the need to establish an award that would not only honor the memory of John Locher, the son of Dick & mary Locher, but also would help discover young cartoonists and stimulate interest in editorial cartooning among college-age students in North America.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT IS JUNE 15, 2019.
