2008 Harvey Award Nomination Ballots Online Now!

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 March 21st.

The Harvey Awards will be presented on September 27th, 2008 in Baltimore as part of the Baltimore Comic-Con. The Master of Ceremonies for the awards dinner and presentation will once again be the wonderful and hilarious Kyle Baker.

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 awards both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.

Professionals who participate will be joining approximately 2,000 peers in honoring the outstanding achievements in comics for 2007. Your participation in completing this Nominating Ballot will allow the Harvey Awards Committee to place before you a Final Ballot in April – one which reflects your candidates for the most outstanding comics work of 2007.

As in 2007, attendees of the 2008 Harvey Awards Ceremonies will receive a Hollywood style swag bag. Last years bag included The EC Archives: Two-Fisted Tales Volume 1, a complete base set of the soon to be released Jericho Season One trading cards from Inkworks, an exclusive pin from AdHouse Books, a Comic-Con exclusive edition of 30 Days of Night: Red Snow #1 from IDW Publishing, a Toon Tumbler from Popfun Merchandising, and an exclusive Harvey Awards keychain from LaserMach.

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 27-28, 2008. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM. The ceremony and banquet for the 2007 Harvey Awards will be held Saturday evening, September 27. Additional details about the Harvey Awards and the awards ceremony will be released over the next few months.
