The Herblock Prize for excellence in editorial cartooning has apparently been on a mission to validate the Daily Kos comics section, having awarded its prize to Matt Wuerker in 2010, Matt Bors in 2012, and Dan Perkins (aka Tom Tomorrow) in 2013.

Today, it announced 2014 winner, Jen Sorensen, who also happens to be the first woman to win the prize.

Congratulations to Jen, who isn't just an awesome cartoonist, but an awesome person. She came up just short, as a finalist, in 2012, so it's great to see her get the recognition she deserves.

And continued props to the Herb Block Foundation for its continued recognition of alt cartoonist, long an under-appreciated art form.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
