Cartoonist of the Year Matt is a household name, on everyone's breakfast table - on the front page of the Daily Telegraph and three slots on Sundays. From the often-absurd world of politics, to sport, the beleaguered heath service and seemingly endless transport traumas, Matt takes a unique and brilliantly entertaining look at life, giving the world we live in a brighter, funnier twist. 'The funniest, the most consistent and quite simply the best' UK Press Awards. 'No one can be funny every time - except Matt' John Humphrys
Matt studied at St Martin's School of Art in London and first saw himself published in the New Statesman during one of its rare lapses from high seriousness. He has been the Daily Telegraph's pocket cartoonist since 1988. In 1995, 1996, 1999, 2005 and 2006 he was the winner of the Cartoon Art Trust Pocket Cartoonist of the Year Award and in 1991 and 2004 he was 'What the Papers Say' Cartoonist of the Year. He is also three times winner of the UK Press Gazette Cartoonist of the Year, and in 2002 he received an MBE.
