Minneapolis Star TribuneSTEVE SACK has been the editorial cartoonist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune since 1981. The NPF judges thought that Steve Sack's cartoons were witty and cleverly drawn. The reader knows at first glance who or what is being caricatured. They also praised his original drawing style.
