Ignatz Award Nominations
The Small Press Expo is inestimably proud to announce the 2013 nominations for our annual awards for excellence in independent comics, the Ignatz. Congratulations to all our nominees!
About the Award
The Ignatz Award, named for the character in the classic comic strip Krazy Kat by George Herriman, is the festival prize of the Small Press Expo, that since 1997 has recognized outstanding achievement in comics and cartooning. The ballot is created by a panel of five cartoonists and is voted on by the attendees of the SPX festival.
The 2013 Ignatz Jury
This year the Ignatz jury was composed of: Lisa Hanawalt, Dustin Harbin, Damien Jay, Sakura Maku and Jason Shiga. Our thanks to all the 2013 jurors for their time and service – with a 70% increase in nomination submissions this year, the jury members truly went above and beyond the call of duty.
