HARVEY AWARDS NOMINEES ANNOUNCED; DORKIN & MILLIONAIRE
TO HOST CEREMONY
Northampton, MA, March 7, 2002 -- The Harvey Awards Committee
is pleased to announce the nominees for the 2001 HARVEY AWARDS,
recognizing outstanding achievements in the comics field during
the past year.
Named after the late cartooning genius HARVEY KURTZMAN and founded
in 1988, the Harveys are one of the industry's oldest and most respected
awards. The nominee list (based on comics publications which shipped
during the calendar year 2001) has been compiled by tallying nominating
votes from ballots mailed to over 2,000 industry writers, artists,
editors, and other professionals involved in the creative aspects
of the comics industry.
Harvey Award winners will also be selected by comics' creative
community through a Final Ballot. The Harveys are the only industry
awards where both the nominees and winners are selected by the entire
body of comic book professionals. Final Ballots are being mailed
to the same professionals who received nominating ballots, with
a voting deadline of April 10th.
Eligible creators who have not received a ballot should contact
the Harvey Awards Administrator Paul McSpadden by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by writing: Harvey Awards, P.O. Box 329, Northampton MA 01061-0329.
This year's recipients will be honored at the 15th Annual Harvey
Awards Banquet on FRIDAY, APRIL 26th (8:00 PM) at the PITTSBURGH
COMICON. EVAN DORKIN, the creator of "Milk & Cheese," "Eltingville"
and "Dork!" will be the evening's Master of Ceremonies for the third
consecutive year. TONY MILLIONAIRE, creator of "Maakies" and "Sock
Monkey," will deliver the keynote address. Dorkin and Millionaire
have each received Harvey nominations and awards in past years.
The awards themselves will be presented by some of the industry's
most respected figures, and several of this year's nominees will
be in attendance.
Tables can still be reserved for the awards ceremony and banquet.
Limited free seating is also available. For more information about
