Missed It: Clay Bennett Wins Cartooning With Conscience Award
Alan Gardner had a nice round-up here of cartooning awards missed in a majority of coverage locations. For a change, I've actually covered the majority, but I did miss out on Clay Bennett winning the "Cartooning With A Conscience" part of the Aronson Awards, which are subtitled "Social Justice Journalism & Cartooning With A Conscience." Bennett is the cartoonist at the Chattanooga Times Free-Press, which I always thought an interesting gig because of that sizable city's distance from a number of larger media centers and thus the significant role played by its paper in driving local coverage. The citation values Bennett's skill with making a direct, succinct point.
