The Australian Cartoonists' Association (ACA) has recently launched a new "Comic Book Artist Award" category within their annual Stanley Awards, and we're pleased to say we were on the consulting team to define the scope of the award.
The submission criteria for this award is:
An artist whose published body of work consists primarily of sequential art drawn with the intention of conveying information and/or telling a story to the reader in the form of comic books (periodicals/"floppies"), graphic novels, adventure cartoon strips with serial content and zines (containing sequential art content).
The ACA Year Book is limited to half a page for award submissions, however, comic book artists will have a full page to showcase their work.
The Award winners will be announced at the 26th Stanley Awards to be held in Melbourne on 6 November 2010.

Please also note that the deadline for entries has been extended to Saturday 28 August 2010.
