“Sacramento Bee editorial cartoonist Jack Ohman was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize Monday for a portfolio of drawings on topics that explored gun violence, marriage equality, terrorism and the state of the American political system,” as the Bee is reporting.
“Ohman, 55, won journalism’s highest honor for what the letter nominating him called a collection of drawings that “ranged from the bold to the masterfully understated.”
“’We at The Sacramento Bee’s editorial board thank the Pulitzer committee for recognizing Jack Ohman with American journalism’s highest award,’ said Dan Morain, The Bee’s editorial page editor. ‘We are privileged to see Jack’s creativity and talent on display every day, and we are fortunate to have such a great colleague and friend.’
“Cheryl Dell, The Bee’s publisher and president, said, ‘Since 1910, The Bee’s editorial cartoonists have used humor and wit to opine. I’m so proud of Jack for following in their footsteps and for finding a way to deliver even more to readers.’
“The prizes, administered by Columbia University, were announced at noon Monday in a ceremony that was live-streamed over the Internet and marked the 100th announcement of the annual awards.”
