BALTIMORE, MD (February 15, 2012) — The Executive Committees of the Harvey Awards and the Baltimore Comic-Con are proud to present the official Nomination Ballot for this year’s Harvey Awards. Named in honor of the late Harvey Kurtzman, one of the industry’s most innovative talents, the Harvey Awards recognize outstanding work in comics and sequential art. Ballots are due for submission by April 16th, 2012.
The Harvey Awards will be presented on September 8th, 2012 in Baltimore as part of the Baltimore Comic-Con. We are thrilled to welcome back Scott Kurtz (pvponline.com) for his third consecutive year as The Master of Ceremonies for the awards dinner and presentation.
Nominations for the Harvey Awards are selected exclusively by creators – those who write, draw, ink, letter, color, design, edit or are otherwise involved in a creative capacity in the comics field. The Harvey Awards are the only industry award both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.
Professionals who participate will be joining thousands of your peers in honoring the outstanding achievements in comics for 2011. Your participation in completing this Nominating Ballot will allow the Harvey Awards Committee to place before you a Final Ballot in May – one which reflects your candidates for the most outstanding comics work of 2011.
We look forward to your participation and input in this process, and we look forward to seeing you at the Baltimore Comic-Con and the Harvey Awards.
This year’s Baltimore Comic-Con will be held September 8-9, 2012. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM. The ceremony and banquet for the 2011 Harvey Awards will be held Saturday night, September 8th.
