Joel Pett’s Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoons have appeared in hundreds of newspapers and magazines worldwide, including the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Times of London, the Boston Globe and the Katmandu Times. Magazine credits include Time, Newsweek, Business Week, and MAD.
Pett received the 1999 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and the 1995, 2007, 2010 and 2011 Global Media Awards for cartoons on population and sustainability issues, and an Emmy for television commentary. He was a Pulitzer finalist in 1989, 1998, and 2011, is a past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, a past Pulitzer juror, and has conducted three overseas seminars on editorial cartooning as a guest speaker of the U.S. State Department.
Pett has also shared his blend of deceptively simple and provocative humor on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, and as a guest lecturer at dozens of venues, including Washington’s Newseum, Boston’s John F. Kennedy Library, Indiana University, Whitman College, Ohio State University, Brandeis University, and many more.
