We’re very proud to announce Michael’s latest national honor, this time from the Overseas Press Club, for Best Cartoon Award. From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
“I am deeply honored to receive this prestigious award. I am proud to be part of a great team of extraordinary journalists at the Las Vegas Review-Journal that puts out a great product every single day,” Ramirez said. “While I am humbled by this award, I can’t take all the credit. I had a lot of help from a large number of nefarious regimes committing evil around the world.”
Judges said Ramirez “masterly employs the full arsenal available to the visual satirist.”
“It is rare to find a cartoonist who deftly creates both dark moods and light humor with such skill and intelligence,” they said. “His work effectively eviscerates sacred cows and makes us laugh, even as we sometimes grumble.”
The award, announced Friday, represents the first time the Review-Journal has received recognition from the Overseas Press Club of America, the country’s oldest journalist association focused on international news.
“There is no finer editorial cartoonist than Michael Ramirez,” Review-Journal Editorial Page Editor John Kerr said. “There is no finer artist, no finer wit and no finer critical thinker. We’re immensely proud to have Michael on our team, and we thank the judges of the Overseas Press Club of America for recognizing his work.”
Ramirez was among prestigious company: Other winners in the 83rd Annual Overseas Press Club Awards included staff from the New York Times, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, CNN and National Public Radio.
