A reminder that the closing date for entries to the new Scottish Independent Comic Book Awards is Monday 2 May 2011. The awards, presented in association with the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society, are due to be handed out at the Glasgow Comic Con’s separate evening event on Saturday 18 June 2011.
There are three different categories in the awards, Best Comic Book/Graphic Novel, Best Artist and Best Writer, with entries open to work either created in Scotland or by a resident of Scotland or with a Scottish theme that was published between January 2010 and March 2011.
Initial submissions will be assessed by a panel consisting of writers Jim Alexander and Frank Plowright, artist Gary Erskine and the Director of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society Stuart Robertson. The shortlisted entries will then be voted for by the attendees of the Glasgow Comic Con who will have the opportunity to view the entries during the week leading up to the convention and at the convention itself.`
