(click here to embiggen)
Here they are, your winner's cartoons.
After two rounds of voting, some 500 entries and 8,000 votes, you'll recall, Washington Post readers last month chose Olivia Walch -- on the strength of her gag-cartoon entry, "IMOGEN QUEST" -- as the contest's "America's Next Great Cartoonist."
By winning the contest, Walch -- a 21-year-old math and biophysics major at the College of William and Mary -- received a $1,000 prize. She also won exposure: A month's run of strips begins appearing today on Page-2 of The Post's Style section, as well as on Comic Riffs.
As Walch said of the win: "This contest has opened up a whole new world for me." She has spent the past six weeks working closely with Style and Washington Post Writers Group editors to prepare "Imogen Quest" for publication.
Now, you can follow her work daily -- here and in Style. And your feedback is welcome -- feel free to share it below.
