All nominations are due by midnight on April 1st, 2018. Please only nominate each creator once- we aren't tallying up votes and extra nominations from the same individual will only make it more difficult for us to sort through all of the forms- it's based on merit, not a popularity contest!
All nominations will be reviewed by the selection committee, and narrowed down to four (4) total finalists. Three (3) of these finalists will be from Comics Professional nominations, and one (1) will be selected from Comic Fan nominations (Fan's Choice).
The finalists will be announced in May 2018, and a winner will be chosen by the selection committee after further review. The award will be presented on May 26, 2018 at the Cherry Capital Comic Con. It is our hope that The Gary Reed Independent Creator Of The Year Award will honor Gary's legacy and the impact that he had on the world of comics. This award has been approved by Gary's family, and will continue on with their blessing.
Thank you for nominating a creator for The Gary Reed Independent Creator of the Year Award!
