The Ohio Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (SPACE) used to have a Day Prize judged by Dave Sim. Apparently, at the show this year, they collected competitors and then Sim backed out. (That is my less than charitable reading.) So they’ve replaced it with the SPACE Prize, to be awarded at the next show in April 2009.
The new award winner will be selected through combining judges’ and exhibitors’ votes. Based on the finalists shown, I’d choose Blink, because out of the two competitors I’ve read, I liked that better. I do wonder about the submission guidelines, because Bill Knapp’s Thorn in the Side came out like two years ago, didn’t it? It also seems a bit odd to put traditional minicomics up against graphic novels. But for a show prize, that’s not uncommon.
