President of the Australian
Cartoon Association, Peter Broelman says that it is fantastic that has raised the bar with this competition.

"If it wasn’t for political
cartoonists, Australia’s politicians would be
respected, revered and perhaps even idolised. And that’s so un-Australian!"

"The Australian Cartoonists’
Association is proud to support the prize and encourages cartoonists of all persuasions
and ages to take part. Who knows, some politicians might try their hand at
satire for some payback!" says Peter.
