Yuuup, For his exemplary courage in upholding freedom to publish, Jonathan 'Zapiro' Shapiro has been named the recipient of this year's IPA Freedom to Publish Prize. IPA stands for International Publishers Association. Basically, he's been awarded for the courage, and braveness to publish whatever he wants.
IPA President YoungSuk "Y.S." Chi will formally present the award during the closing ceremony of the 29th Congress of the International Publishers Association (IPA) at the CTICC on 14 June 2012.
Of course, it hasn't been an easy road for Zapiro. In 2006, Jacob Zuma sued him for R15 million over three cartoons done during Jacob Zuma's rape trial (he was acquitted). The amount demanded has been reduced but the lawsuit has not been withdrawn. He also also been in some other controversial drawings including that of Eskom, Thabo Mbeki, Bheki Cele and more. He does draw the truth though!
I say that Zapiro is a brave soul... and talented artist. He definitely deserves this award. Congrats boet!!
