Biography

Four-time Pulitzer finalist and 2000 Pulitzer Prize winner Joel Pett has been at the Lexington Herald-Leader since 1984. His sharp-edged political cartoons have appeared in hundreds of newspapers, including the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Times of London, USA Today and the Katmandu Times.

Other media credits include NPRís All Things Considered, Morning Edition and The World, PBSí Newshour, MSNBCís All In with Chris Hayes, and magazines: Time, Newsweek, Business Week, Omni, Institutional Investor, Spa Finder, Sierra, and MAD.

Pett also received the 1999 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and five Global Media Awards for cartoons on population issues, as well as an Emmy for television commentary.† He 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.

A sometime stand-up comic, Pett has shared his blend of deceptively simple and provocative humor at dozens of venues, including the Newseum in Washington, D.C., Bostonís John F. Kennedy Library, Indiana University, Whitman College, Ohio State University, Brandeis University and more.
