Pierre Sadek was Lebanon’s leading political caricaturist and a genius. During my AUB years, I spent countless hours looking through old archives and checking his brilliant newspapers caricatures from the 70s and 80s.

Following his death in 2013, the Pierre Sadek Foundation was established and “La Plume de Pierre”, The Pierre Sadek Award for Editorial Cartoons, was kicked off. The annual award for new editorial drawings/caricatures was created to safeguard this caricaturist’s legacy and promote and showcase emerging talent in the field of caricature.

From March 1 till March 13, you will be able to see the caricatures produced by the finalists for La Plume de Pierre award at the Sursock Museum in Achrafieh.
