Mark Fiore picked up the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning:

For a distinguished cartoon or portfolio of cartoons characterized by originality, editorial effectiveness, quality of drawing and pictorial effect, in print or online or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to Mark Fiore, self syndicated, for his animated cartoons appearing on SFGate.com, the San Francisco Chronicle Web site, where his biting wit, extensive research and ability to distill complex issues set a high standard for an emerging form of commentary.

According to the San Franciso Chronicle, “Fiore’s winning entry included "Science-gate," which adopts the voice-over tone of a mudslinging political ad to lampoon skeptics of global warming.”

  2. I tend not to drop a leave a response, but after reading a few of the comments here Carbon Fixated » Climategate cartoonist wins Pulitzer. I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or do some of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
