Oregonian cartoonist JACK OHMAN wins Sigma Delta Chi award
The Oregonian's political cartoonist Jack Ohman was among the winners announced today for the 2009 Sigma Delta Chi Awards, as announced by the Society of Professional Journalists.
Ohman won for a portfolio of his Sunday cartoons, which -- unlike his single-panel daily cartoons -- have multiple panels and a narrative arc, according to OregonLive.com. His Portland newspaper competes in the circulation category of 100,000-plus.
Ohman's previous honors include the Overseas Press Club Award and the National Headliners Award. Ohman, 49, has been at the Oregonian since 1983.
In other editorial cartooning categories, freelancer Terrence L. Nowicki Jr. won for non-daily publications; and Truthdig's Dwayne Booth won for his "Mr. Fish" portfolio in the 50,001-100,000 circulation division.
No cartooning award was given in the 50,000-and-Under or Regional Magazine category.
SPJ said it received more than 1,300 entries in print, radio, television and online categories. The awards will be presented at SPJ's national convention Oct. 2 in Las Vegas.
