Nominees announced for first British Comic Awards

The nominees have been announced for the inaugural British Comic Awards, held in conjunction with Thought Bubble, the Nov. 17-18 Leeds comic art festival. Recognizing “the finest examples of creativity, ingenuity, skill and originality in sequential storytelling” by U.K. creators over the past year, the  awards don’t distinguish between print and digital or published and self-published.

The Hall of Fame inductee will be selected by the BCA committee and announced shortly before the Nov. 17 awards ceremony. The nominees for the Young People’s Comic Award, presented in association with the Leeds Book Awards and Leeds Library, were selected by that same committee, and will be voted upon by children at participating schools. The winner will be announced Nov. 16 in a ceremony at the Leeds Library.
