Ethan Persoff’s webcomic, A Dog and His Elephant won an SXSW Web Award in the “Weird/Extreme” category. ADAHE is published online by Serializer.
In the “Animation/Cartoon” category, Sixsidia was choosen.
The 2003 SXSW Website Competition positions itself on the frontier of innovation, uncovering the best new online creations in over 20 categories. SXSW, (South by Southwest), is a Austin, Texas Based company specializing in conference and festival events for entertainment and related media industry professionals. Since 1987, SXSW has produced the internationally recognized Music and Media Conference & Festival.
It’s kind of a shame that with all of the categories that SXSW has it didn’t have a webcomic award. SXSW is an extremely cool festival and gets decent coverage – any award for comics (online or not) would be a good thing.
Agreed — on the other hand, to have a webcomic win an award in a category open to all websites (well, okay, all “weird” websites) is quite an achievement for the form in and of itself (and definitely quite an achievement for Ethan).
Absolutely. Good recognition – well deserved too I might add!
