The principal award is the Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, given since 1946 for print cartoonists, primarily comic strips, and is often compared to the Academy Awards in its stature.
The Comics Journal: Online Features (1865 words)
Entries for journalism awards are chosen by 65 editors, publishers, writers and educators (broken into juries of 5 persons) from material appearing in any US newspaper published daily, Sunday, or at least weekly during the calendar year, with nominations for the cartooning category being limited to a portfolio of 20 cartoons.
The winner of the 1948 Pulitzer for editorial cartooning, Reuben "Rube" Goldberg, however, is the inspiration for an equally prestigious award, this one within the comics industry itself: the Reuben Award.
Unusual for comics awards on a number of counts, the Ignatzes are "festival prizes" nominated by an anonymous board of independent cartoonists, and voted on by all attendees of the SPX expo (rather than by the committee-based system preferred by most awards boards).
