PRESIDENT’S FOREWORD

Welcome to another brilliant Year Book! Whasssssup? Welcome to the Yearbook for 2019! Boy, what a year it’s been for cartooning. World politics have been the craziest I can ever recall in my entire life and it doesn’t seem to show signs of slowing down! And what’s great about that, for a start, is the wealth of pickings for cartoonists of many stripes to have a go at! There’s a great selection in our Political/Editorial Cartoonist section, but that’s not all – this yearbook is packed with the real crème de la crème of Australian cartooning in 2019! There’s something for everyone, and it’s all incredible. ... Which, is the problem, because it makes voting so much harder every year! If you all stopped being so good, it might be easier but Australia’s best cartoonists aren’t ones to lay down and roll over. And, all jokes aside, that’s actually a great thing. The contents of this Yearbook prove that Australian cartooning is not only fighting fit, but is on a par with anything else the world can put forth. So, kick back, focus up, and take your time going through this book and selecting your votes for the crème de la crème de la crème! It’s a tough job every single year, but voting is so important! I really can’t stress that enough. If you’ve ever received a Stanley, you are obligated to vote. And if you haven’t yet received one, will this may well be your year. But we’ll never know if you don’t VOTE! Don’t delay, get straight onto it!

And I’ll see you in Canberra on the first weekend of December for our yearly awesomeness, the 35th annual Stanley Awards! Cartooning forever!
