GEORGE TOWNSEND AWARD (TOWNSIE)
This two part award, one for the best cartoon in English and one for the best cartoon in French was initiated By the Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists under President Wes Tyrell at the Havana, Cuba Convention in 2014. With the 2016 Toronto Conference the awards were given by a reorganized Association of Canadian Editorial Cartoonists which was renamed the Association of Canadian Cartoonists.
The winners at the 2014 Havana Conference were Michael deAdder and Christian Daigle (Fleg).
There was no 2015 Conference therefore no awards were given..
The winners at the 2016 Toronto Conference were Dale Cummings and Christian Daigle (Flegg).
