2011 Cartooning and Photography Winners

Marc Beaudet of Le Journal de Montreal doesn’t fail to address matters that have a world impact. He portrayed Dominique Strauss-Kahn showing his gratitude to Blind Justice for his freedom. Jack Layton is the fighter heading off toward the white light. Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates thanks Steve Jobs for getting his new Apple iPad. In another cartoon, Moammar Gadhafi shows up as a celebrity arriving in Hell. A fifth imagines Prime Minister Stephen Harper dreaming of smooching with Queen Elizabeth as one of Benetton’s “unhate” advertising images. Beaudet won this award in 2006.
