The winning entry

Outlook illustrator Sandeep Adhwaryu has bagged the first prize in the first “Maya Kamath Memorial Award for excellence in cartooning-2008”, organized by the Indian Institute of Cartoonists, Bangalore.

The award carries a cash prize of Rs 25,000.

The award is in memory of Maya Kamath, India’s only woman political cartoonist, who did work for The Times of India and The Asian Age, before her untimely demise in 2001 at the age of 50.

The second prize has gone to Ramadhyani of Navika, a Kannada daily, and the third prize to Shankar of the multi-edition Telugu daily, Saakshi.

Muhammad Zahoor of The Daily, Peshwar, won a special jury award.

The entries for the awards were judged by the playwright Girish Karnad; the resident editor of The Times of India in Bangalore, H.S. Balram; the artist S.G. Vasudev; and the chief political cartoonist of The Hindu, Keshav.

Must say this is classic! But how did he end up at the Congress Pamphlet? He seems way too talented for Outlook and obviously does not share the Outlook philosophy of being a Congress Chamcha.

PS: The height of the characters relative to the flag and relative to each other, the absence of any junta in the O-mama part is in itself a comment!
