The Judging Panel 2013

We are genuinely delighted to finally announce this year’s Judging Panel for the British Comic Awards 2013.

The Judges are (in alphabetical order):

Gareth David (lyricist and singer in the band Los Campesinos!), Lenny Henry (actor, writer and comedian), Stephen L Holland (co-owner and manager of Page 45 comic shop), Jamillah Knowles (writer and broadcaster), Graham Linehan (comedy writer and director), Josie Long (comedian, writer and actress) and Sarah McIntyre (cartoonist and children’s book illustrator).

Full bios can be found on the Judges page.

The Judges were selected by the BCA Committee and chosen for their interest or involvement in comics and for their ability to view the medium critically as works of art and entertainment from their point of view as successful professionals in their respective creative fields.

We’d like to welcome all the Judges to the British Comic Awards, thank them for donating their time so generously and wish them luck in the unenviable task of selecting a winner from what is shaping up to be a very, very strong shortlist.

And don’t forget, nominations are still open (until July 31st for Young People’s Comic Award and August 30th for the other awards) so check the rules and suggest your favourite comics for the shortlist!

Taking place at a variety of venues across the city of Leeds, their aim is to cater to both long-term comic book fans and those who have never picked up a graphic novel before!
