Harvey Awards Nominees Announced — PR

The 2007 Harvey Awards Nominees have been announced with the release of the final ballot, presented by the Executive Committees of the Harvey Awards and the Baltimore Comic-Con. Named in honor of the late Harvey Kurtzman, one of the industry’s most innovative talents, the Harvey Awards recognize outstanding work in comics and sequential art. They will be presented September 8, 2007 in Baltimore, MD, in conjunction with the Baltimore Comic-Con.

Harvey Award

Nominations for the Harvey Awards are selected exclusively by creators — those who write, draw, ink, letter, color, design, edit or are otherwise involved in a creative capacity in the comics field. They are the only industry awards both nominated by and selected by the full body of comic book professionals. Professionals who participate will be joining nearly 2,000 other comics professionals in honoring the outstanding comics achievements of 2006. Thank you to all that have already participated by submitting a nomination ballot.

Final ballots are due to the Harvey Awards by Friday, August 3, 2007. Full details for submission of completed ballots can be found on the final ballot. Voting is open to anyone involved in a creative capacity within the comics field.

This will be the second year for the Harvey Awards in Baltimore, MD. Our Master of Ceremonies will be Kyle Baker. Look for more details soon on how you can attend the Harvey Awards dinner.
