2010 PULITZERS: SFGate's Mark Fiore wins cartooning's award
The question had only grown in intensity in recent years: When would a cartoonist win a Pulitzer for what was entirely an entry of animation?
Well, the wait is over.
The Pulitzer Prizes announced this afternoon that Fiore, who draws political animations for SFGate.com -- the San Francisco Chronicle's Web site -- has won this year's award for distinguished Editorial Cartooning.
The jurors said that Fiore's "biting wit, extensive research and ability to distill complex issues set a high standard for an emerging form of commentary."
Fiore's prior awards include the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award (2004) and the Online Journalism Award for commentary from the Online News Association (2002 and again in 2008). Fiore, whose artwork has appeared in The Washington Post, also won two National Cartoonists Society awards for his new-media work.
Fiore, who graduated from Colorado College in 1991, has drawn for the San Francisco Chronicle for a decade.
