The Web Cartoonists Choice Awards announce their 2006 schedule

The schedule has been finalized for this year�s Web Cartoonists� Choice Awards. We’re hoping for a great year with some exciting changes. So please keep watching the website at for more details.

The process will begin on May 15th when the nomination round begins. At this point, eligible cartoonists will be allowed to register and begin choosing nominees based on their work within the previous year. The nomination round will run until May 29th.

On June 12th the top nominees in each category will be announced and the polls will open once again for the final voting round. The final polls will remain open until July 10th with the winners being announced on July 17th. Please note that this is different from previous years in that the polls will now be open through Sunday with announcements appearing on Monday. This is to allow voters more freedom to examine potential comics over their weekend.

Also note that it�s not too late to join the WCCA planning committee. All levels of involvement are needed. In addition to some �executive� positions, which are still open, simply being part of the decision-making committee can be a huge help. The only way this process can grow and mature is through the active participation of an eager committee. If you�re interested in joining the WCCA planning committee, please email Mark Mekkes at
