Peter Broelman kicked off his career at The News in 1990 and has since contributed to a host of publications that have included People, TV Week, Sunday Mail, MAD, Cracked, Reader’s Digest and Australasian Post.
Peter has also been a court artist (Network Ten), comic strip artist (Australia, The Netherlands, Norway and Sweden) and corporate caricaturist.
His first love is editorial cartoons where opinion is just as important as irreverence. His daily editorial cartoons are seen in regional newspapers across the country.
Peter is a former President of the Australian Cartoonists’ Association – the world’s oldest cartoonist organisation.
In November 2004 Peter was recognised by his peers for his editorial work for APN News and Media and was awarded the ACA’s Stanley Award for Editorial Cartoonist Of The Year. It was Peter’s first major award and second time as a finalist for Cartoonist Of The Year.
In 2005 Peter was again recognised for his editorial work with his second editorial Stanley Award. This was followed up with the Gold Stanley for Cartoonist Of The Year, the first time a South Australian received the award.
In 2009 Peter was again recognised by his peers with the editorial Stanley Award and the Gold Stanley for Cartoonist Of The Year at the 25th Stanley Awards held in Darling Harbour, Sydney.
He still hates going over the line when he colours in.
Peter Broelman’s editorial cartoons are seen daily in regional newspapers across Australia. Peter started creating editorial cartoons full time in 2003 with APN News & Media. Today he is seen in a stack of regionals in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
Peter has received three Stanley Awards for his editorial work in 2004, 2005 and 2009.
