Matt Bors was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize this year! Most of the Free Press cartoons on the website are the work of Matt Bors, originally from Ohio. The Free Press began using his biting political cartoons that addressed current social justice issues in our printed issue many years ago. Since then, Matt moved to the west coast and became syndicated with United Features (now Universal U-Click).

Earlier this year, Matt was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in the cartoon category: "For a distinguished cartoon or portfolio of cartoons, characterized by originality, editorial effectiveness, quality of drawing and pictorial effect, published as a still drawing, animation or both." Another cartoonist got the Prize, but the committee cited Matt as a finalist:

"Matt Bors, syndicated by Universal U-Click, for his pungent work outside the traditional style of American cartooning."

Now Matt has a book coming out and is raising money through Kickstarter to fund his effort. It is his first collection of political cartoons titled "Life Begins At Incorporation." It's for a 225 page collection of his comics with humor essays.
