These awards are the only “festival prize” in comics, which means that the winners are selected by the votes of those who attend SPX. The list of nominees on the ballot are previously chosen by a jury of five cartoonists.

Eligible works must have been released between July 1, 2011, and May 31, 2012. (These dates have been changed from prior years and from the information available on the website. Previously, the eligibility period ran July to June.)

To submit work, send six copies to
SPX Ignatz Awards
c/o Big Planet Comics
426 Maple Ave East
Vienna, VA 22180
Submissions should be received by June 7, 2012. (Less than a month away!) Digital works should submit URLs. The print comics will later be donated to the Small Press Expo Collection at the Library of Congress.
