NPF Award Winner: Clifford K. & James T. Berryman Award for Editorial Cartoons - Adam Zyglis

Adam Zyglis 2013

The Buffalo News

Adam Zyglis is the staff editorial cartoonist for The Buffalo News, his hometown newspaper. He began drawing editorial cartoons in 2001 for The Griffin, the student newspaper at Canisius College. In the spring of 2004, he graduated summa cum laude from the Canisius All-College Honors Program with a degree in Computer Science and Math. Throughout college Zyglis worked as a freelance caricaturist and illustrator, and he wrote his Senior Honors Thesis on the “Art of Editorial Cartooning.”

After earning three national collegiate cartooning awards from his work at The Griffin, Zyglis landed an internship in the Graphics Department of The Buffalo News. At just 22 years old, Zyglis became the staff cartoonist for The News in August of 2004, replacing Tom Toles who left for The Washington Post.

Since then his cartoons have appeared in magazines, books and newspapers around the world, including The Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. His work earned him 3rd place for Editorial Cartoons in both the 2007 and 2011 National Headliner Awards, sponsored by the Atlantic City Press Club. In 2007, Zyglis became internationally syndicated through Cagle Cartoons.
