Patrick Chappatte is an editorial cartoonist and graphical journalist seen in Le Temps, Der Spiegel, NZZ, Canard Enchaîné and The Boston Globe among other titles. He was one of the cartoonists whose work was notoriously and unfairly dropped from the international edition of the The New York Times in 2019. He is the first non-American to receive the Thomas Nast Award given by the Overseas Press Club of America, and has won three times. He sits as an international advisor to the board of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) and is a member of Cartooning for Peace. His first long-form book, entitled Au coeur de la vague (At the heart of the wave), covers the COVID-19 health crisis and was published in 2020. The following year he became president of the Freedom Cartoonists Foundation, Geneva (formerly Cartooning for Peace Swiss Foundation); the foundation and CRNI jointly present awards to courageous cartoonists in alternating years.
