Help the Ghastly Awards have a great inaugural year by joining the nomination process!
Here's the press release:
We are pleased to tell you that the Ghastly Awards are coming!
Founded in 2011 by Decapitated Dan with the help of Steve Banes, Mike Howlett, Lonnie Nadler and Mykal Banta, The Ghastly Awards have been created for horror comic creators to nominate their peers for industry wide recognition. But the only way for them to know how to vote is to get the word out there to them.
Nominating works like this:
• Creators (Artists, Writers, Inkers, Colorists, Letterers, Editors and Web Comic Creators) have one year to nominate, and are allowed to nominate up to 5 times during that year. You can not nominate yourself and you can not nominate someone/something more than once.
• At the end of the year nominations will be counted and the top 5 in each category will be the nominees.
• That list of nominees will be voted on by a panel of 5 judges. These judges will be members of the horror comics community who do not have any part in making comics; Reviewers, Journalists and Historians.
Now we know that this is the end of the year, so we need your help in getting the word out there to creators so we can get nominations in for 2011. Please visit http://www.ghastlyawards.com to nominate. Nominating will be open for 2011 comic books until Feb. 29, 2012.
