First prize. Jean-Loïc Belhomme (France).
A jury composed of members of World Press Freedom Canada has awarded the prizes for the 21st edition of the World Press Freedom International Editorial Cartoon Competition. This year, 406 entries from authors in 59 countries were submitted.
The competition was created more than two decades ago by Spencer Moore, retired journalist and former president of the National Press Club of Canada, to honour journalists on World Press Freedom Day.
Among the cartoons awarded this year were those by colleague Malagón and French illustrator Anne Derenne, who has lived in Spain since 2009. This year’s theme was “Censorship, shaming and disinformation on social media”.
