The Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartoon is one of the fourteen American Pulitzer Prizes that are annually awarded for Journalism. It has been awarded since 1922 for a distinguished editorial cartoon or portfolio of cartoons published during the year, characterized by originality, editorial effectiveness, quality of drawing, and pictorial effect.

Finalists have been announced from 1980, ordinarily two others beside the winner.[1]

Winners and citations[edit]

In its first 92 years to 2013, the Editorial Cartooning Pulitzer was awarded 87 times; none was given in five years and it was never split. Many cartoonists won it more than once (below).[1]

Repeat winners[edit]

Through 2013, seventeen people have won the Editorial Cartooning Pulitzer twice and five of them have won it three times.

The other repeat winners are Steve Breen, Jay N. "Ding" Darling, Daniel R. Fitzpatrick, Walt Handelsman, Nelson Harding, David Horsey, Mike Luckovich, Bill Mauldin, Michael Ramirez, Vaughn Shoemaker, Paul Szep, and Don Wright.

Nelson Harding won the prize consecutively in 1927 and 1928.[1]
