Signe Wilkinson won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for her editorial cartooning at the Philadelphia Daily News. When Tony Auth left sister paper The Inquirer in 2012, Wilkinson became cartoonist for both newspapers.

The citation for the cartooning Pulitzer Prize says it is awarded “for a distinguished example of a cartoonist’s work during the year in a United States newspaper, the determining qualities being that the cartoon shall embody an idea made clearly apparent, shall show good drawing and striking pictorial effect, and shall be intended to be helpful to some commendable cause of public importance, due account being taken of the whole volume of the artist’s newspaper work during the year.” (Photograph by Donald D.
