Mike Peters Repeats As National Headliner Winner

Michael Cavna of Comic Riffs talks to this year's cartoonists recognized in the Editorial Cartoons category of the National Headline Awards. Mike Peters of the Dayton Daily News (and Mother Goose & Grimm strip notoriety) took home the award for 2011, repeating an honor he received in 2010. Stuart Carlson was the runner-up; the Buffalo News' Adam Zyglis came in third place. As Cavna points out, it's an intriguing group: Peters the established veteran in the lion-in-winter phase of a distinguished career, Carlson the former staff cartoonist at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel whose position was eliminated for financial reasons, and Zyglis the visually strident young cartoonist ensconced at a paper with a long tradition of first-rate cartooning efforts.

The National Headline Awards program is run by Atlantic City's Press Club and is one of the traditional, broad-based awards given out to a variety of expressions in media.
