Lat Receives Journalism Award

One of the world's great cartoonists, Lat, real name Datuk Mohd Nor Khalid, has been given a Special Jury Award at the the 2004 Malaysian Press Institute's Petronas Journalism Awards. Lat, perhaps best known for his book The Kampung Boy, worked for the New Strait Times on staff before becoming a freelancer with the Times as a major client. According to the article, the award goes to "those who have contributed significantly to journalism and society and have become an institution in their own right." Lat will soon have work available in North America via the First Second line.
