Supanova Proudly Announces the Australian Comic Book Industry Awards!
Supanova’s roots, and our first love, has always been comic books. We’re proud to announce the commitment to these roots in the form of Australia’s only dedicated comic book awards. The details, the criteria, the awesomeness is still under wraps but will be revealed soon, allowing plenty of time for creators, publishers and fans alike to prepare for Melbourne Supanova 2013 and the first of this annual event.
Taking the mantle of the respected but sadly inactive Ledger Awards, Supanova will be running this important event with the blessing of The Ledgers’ founder legendary Australian comics creator Gary Chaloner. Named after pioneering Australian cartoonist Peter Ledger (1945–1994), the awards were first held in 2005 to help promote and focus attention on Australian creators and their projects, both in Australia and overseas. We’re committed to making The Ledgers inclusive, transparent and relevant. But most of all, we’re committed to helping Australian comic books stay awesome!
Much, much more very soon but in the meantime please send all inquiries via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
