Stanley Awards In Australia

Plucked Verbatim from the ACA Website:

Whilst most gala awards nights glitter and sparkle, October 26th Saturday night’s Stanley Awards for the Australian Cartoonists Association was festooned in lavish inks as Australia’s premier cartoonists gathered to celebrate not only their craft but an incredible year in Australian politics. With so much quality fodder from politics left and right, cartoonists were almost buckling under the weight of gags.

“There’s been so much choice, we’ve actually been discarding high quality jokes in favour of better ones,” laughed Peter Broelman, a freelance editorial cartoonist and previous winner of Cartoonist of the Year. “We’ve been like kids in a candy store all year long.”

Picking up the awards were some of Australia’s best loved cartoonists including David Rowe for Best Caricaturist, Glen le Lievre for Best Single Gag Cartoonist, Gary Clark for Best Comic Strip and Mark Knight for Best Editorial/Political Cartoonist. However, Anton Emdin scooped the pool with Best Comic Book Artist, Best Illustrator and the coveted Gold Stanley for Cartoonist of the Year. It is the second Gold Stanley for Emdin, having previously won it in 2011. [Here, at your eye’s elbow, is a random sample of Emdin’s work.—RCH]

The Jim Russell Award for contribution to Australian cartooning was presented to Russ Radcliffe, commissioning editor at Scribe, for a decade of “Best Australian Political Cartoons” and a host of other political cartoon compilations.

Gary Clark was also presented with a special trophy recognising his remarkable achievement of producing 10,000 Swamp daily comic strips.
