AMMAN — Jordanian cartoonist Nasser Jafari recently won third place in the 2012 UN Cartoon Award.
Jafari on Monday said he received the award for a political cartoon published in Al Ghad daily on the events in Syria.
Jordanian cartoonist Naser Al Jafari, who won third place in an international award on political cartoons on Sunday said he rejected the prize because it is “funded by a pro-Israel cartoonist”.
Ranan Lurie, chairman of a UN cartoon award named after him, on Monday said he was unaware that Jordanian cartoonist Naser Al Jafari had rejected his prize.
Jordanian cartoonist Abdel Naser Al Jafari on Thursday won third prize in a cartoon competition organised by the Doha Centre for Media Freedom, marking World Press Freedom Day.
