Assassins: when cartoonists hit their mark

Readers of newspapers generally enjoy political cartoons. Most think of them as a light hearted visual relief from the pages and pages of serious text – politicians say they enjoy them too. However, what happens when a cartoonist manages to depict our political leaders in a way they do not appreciate? This exhibition presents a series of political cartoons that have caused their subjects to respond publicly and in some cases, retaliate.

Political Cartoon of the year Awards 2014

The UK’s leading cartoonists from all the national press will gather to celebrate and commiserate with the winners and losers. There are two awards, the Political Cartoonist of the Year and the Political Cartoon of the Year. The results will be announced by our guest of honour Jeremy Paxman, at the award ceremony on 2 December. The winning cartoons will be on display after the awards until February 2015.
