The BCA Committee 2013 would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has taken part in this year’s Awards and helped us expand and improve what we’re trying to do.
None of this would be possible without the hundreds of suggestions for quality British comics that we get from YOU, the general public via our suggestion form. The more people we hear from the bigger picture we have of the breadth of British comics scene, so thank you to each and every person who suggested a title this year. The suggestion form for next year’s awards will be up soon.
We’d also like to thank all our young judges who decided the winner for Young People’s Comic Award. A special ceremony was held on Friday 22nd November at the Leeds Town Hall and 4 of our nominees plus BCA judge, cartoonist and children’s book illustrator Sarah McIntyre were there to talk to the judges about their work. Here’s a few photos:
Four of our five nominees, from L to R: Jim Medway, Dan White, Viviane Schwarz and Garen Ewing with their fantastic books. Thanks for coming and making it such a special afternoon.
