A Message for Creators and Comic Industry Professionals:
Harvey Award Nomination Ballots Due in 4 days!
Ballots Due May 6, 2013!
As a creator within the comics and graphic novel industry, you are eligible to nominate works and vote for the Harvey Awards. And this year – you can vote online! We encourage all professionals to vote, whether you choose 1, 5, or all categories. Every vote counts! Ballots can be submitted at http://www.harveyawards.org/2013-nomination-ballot or found in PDF or text format from the same page!
Please vote and submit a nomination ballot for the Harvey Awards. The deadline for nominations is this coming Monday, May 6th. While we are down to the final weekend, we assure you there is still time to get your votes in and to influence the votes of others. Plenty of ballots will be sent in this weekend and even Monday!
The Harvey Awards work hard every year to insure that we have a ballot that makes the entire industry proud. By enabling the industry to vote online at http://www.harveyawards.org/2013-nomination-ballot, as well as providing paper ballots on request and promoting the awards daily on Facebook and Twitter, we have enabled participation by the entire industry and, as a result, ballots have been a great representation of the best works published in the previous year.
If you think there is a piece of work, including yours, that deserves the votes of others, please spread the word. We encourage voters, publishers, and journalists to e-mail, blog, tweet, and otherwise promote works that deserve recognition. Here are some ideas for promoting your works to other creators, as well as determining for what you should vote:
- Not sure what was published in 2012 and want ideas? Google “best comics 2012″.
- Use Twitter to show your support for a given work!
- Use hashtag #harveys2013 on your tweet.
- Blog about the work you want to promote.
- Please spread word to your peers that they can vote!
Submit your ballot online. If you prefer, you can complete and email ballots to firstname.lastname@example.org. Mailing address information is on the PDF copy of the ballot.
We look forward to hearing from you.
