The Eagle Awards 2011!
25th February 2011
“What was your favourite comic of 2010? Which artists and writers really grabbed your attention? Nominations are now open and will run until 7 March for the world-famous Eagle Awards.
The top five nominations in each section will move to the voting round which gets underway on 14 March – let us know who you want to see honoured on the big night of 27 May at the London MCM Expo by picking your favourites of 2010.”
The Eagle Awards are the longest established awards in the comic industry and recognise indie/smallpress creators such as myself alongside industry giants such as Mavel and DC. And most importantly- these awards are voted on by the public.
The awards will be presented at the MCM Expo in London in May this year. At present the awards are in the “nomination stage” – this means that YOU can nominate any creators or comics for each category. In each category the five nominations with the most public support will go through to become the final nominees. I was amazed to see myself and Fera listed already (so thank you to those who have already nominated Fera).
For those who have yet to cast their votes- do so however you like on your favourite comics of 2010, but please consider voting for myself (Davy Shirley) or my comic (Fera) in any categories that you feel are applicable such as;
Favourite Newcomer Writer (Davy Shirley), Favourite Newcomer Artist (Davy Shirley), Favourite Writer/Artist (Davy Shirley), Favourite British Comicbook: Colour (Fera issue#1: When Worlds Collide), Favourite New Comicbook (Fera issue#1: When Worlds Collide), Favourite Web-Based Comic (Fera), Favourite 2010 Original Graphic Novel (Fera issue#1: When Worlds Collide)
Anyway, if you can spare a moment or two to vote for the comics that you loved of 2010 then click on the link below and go vote:
The nomination stage ends on 7th March so get those votes in whilst you can and share that link with your friends.
