Tom Scott (cartoonist)

Tom Scott (cartoonist)

Tom Scott (born 1947) is a New Zealand cartoonist, and is regarded by some as one of the best New Zealand cartoonists since the 1970s.

Scott has been the regular cartoonist, initially for the "New Zealand Listener" magazine and then for the "Evening Post" newspaper and its successor the "Dominion Post", for most of his career.

As a newspaper columnist and cartoonist, Scott often provokes New Zealand politicians and at one stage was banned from the press contingent for a considerable period of time by the Prime Minister of the day, the Right Honourable Sir Robert Muldoon, which naturally resulted in continuing astringent expressions in the press by Scott.

Scott has won numerous awards, including New Zealand Cartoonist of the Year (five times), Columnist of the Year, and Political Columnist of the Year (three times). He also won scriptwriting awards for "Fallout" and for "View from the Top". Scott co-wrote the screenplay for the animated feature with Murray Ball. In 2001 Scott wrote the semi-autobiographical stage play "The Daylight Atheist" which has since been performed by numerous theatres in New Zealand and Australia.
