The Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartoons 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]
