2020 Quills: Cartoon

Matt Golding of The Sunday Age won the 2020 Cartoon Quill.

Judges' citation

Matt Golding's cartoon based on the famous WWI Saville Lumley recruiting poster was a beautiful concept, executed skillfully, it carried a rapier message that cut through the noise of the pandemic about peoples atrocious behaviour during the covid shutdowns in 2020. The judges thought the idea and execution lifted it slightly above the other high quality entries in an action packed year for cartooning. Well Done Mr Golding.
