Clifford K. & James T. Berryman Award for Editorial Cartoons

Matt Wuerker 2010

POLITICO

Matt Wuerker of The POLITICO has won the 2010 the Clifford K. and James T. Berryman Award for editorial cartooning, one the field’s most prestigious awards.

Garnering Honorable Mentions for their work were Tom Toles of The Washington Post; Daryl Cagle of MSNBC and Jimmy Margulies of The Record (New Jersey). Wuerker received an Honorable Mention last year; Margulies won the award in 2005.

The awards will be presented at the National Press Foundation’s annual Awards Dinner, on March 1, 2011, in Washington. Wuerker will receive $2,500 and the others will receive $500 each. The National Press Foundation, a 501-c-3, was established in 1975 to provide all-expenses paid educational programs in the U.S. and internationally, and awards for accomplishment.

“Matt’s drawings blend satire, irony and the right amount of anger to skewer the politically powerful of all persuasions,” the judges said.
The judges for the 2010 Berryman were Tom Rosenstiel, director, Project for Excellence in Journalism; Susan Swain, co-president of C-SPAN; Karen Doyne, Director, Crisis Management, Burson-Marsteller; Kevin Goldberg, media attorney, Fletcher, Heald and Hildreth (all of whom are members of the NPF board); and Steve Breen, editorial cartoonist of the San Diego Union-Tribune, who won the Berryman in 2007.

The Berrymans were a father and son team of cartoonists who each won a Pulitzer Prize while working for the Washington Star. Funds are taken from an endowment created in 1989 by Florence Berryman, the former at critic for the Star, in honor of her father and brother.

Other awards to be presented at the March 1 dinner include the Ben Bradlee Editor of the Year Award, the W.M. Kiplinger Distinguished Contributions to Journalism Award and the Dirksen Award for Coverage of Congress, among others. Approximately 1,000 journalists and policy makers attend the dinner, NPF’s largest source of unrestricted revenue.
