Nate Beeler Wins 2014 Fischetti Award For Justice/Liberty Cartoon
Nate Beeler of the Columbus Dispatchhas won this year's John Fischetti Editorial Cartoon Competition for his Lady Justice/Lady Liberty cartoon following the Supreme Court's strikedown of the Defense Of Marriage Act. The Fischetti Award is distinguished by its focus on a single cartoon rather than a submitted portfolio of selections or one's cumulative work over a selected time period.
Steve Breen and Jim Morin received honorable mentions.
The Fischetti award I believe comes with monetary compensation and the winner is honored at a banquet. Fischetti was a much-honored editorial cartoonist based in Chicago, and a Pultizer Prize winner 45 years ago. The competition is hosted by Chicago's Columbia College.
Beeler has been with the Dispatch since 2012, coming over from the Washington Examiner.
