2012 Cartoon Contest Contestants

The UCS Editorial Cartoon Contest

The 2012 UCS Editorial Cartoon Contest has ended! The winner is Isabella Bannerman of Hastings-on-Hudson, NY. The 2013 Editorial Cartoon Calendar, featuring the winning cartoon plus the 11 others featured below, is available now.

About the Contest

This year’s twelve talented artists created editorial cartoons that poke fun at the not-so-humorous challenges to the complex relationship between science and democracy.

The cartoons cover a number of topics that are critical to the role of science in federal policymaking, including the general state of public dialogue, corporate interference in science, attacks on the scientific regulatory system, barriers to the responsible use of science in policy making, the interaction communications and social media with science, attacks on scientists, and the defense of science.
