LET’S TALK IGNATZ AWARDS!
For folks that aren’t familiar (and we’re hoping to see many new faces at this year’s show) the Ignatz Awards are SPX’s very own prize for excellence in independent comics.
The award is pretty unique in that only attendees of the SPX festival get the opportunity to vote for the recipients. I will give you a moment to study the most excellent 2012 nominations.
I mentioned a few days ago that we asked the winner of the previous year’s Promising New Talent Ignatz award winner to draw a version of the famous brick-throwing mouse for this year’s event. We are going to multiply that awesome by buttons and balloons!
HOW TO FIND IGNATZ NOMINATED ARTISTS
We’ve added a little spice to the nominations and voting this year. All the nominated artists will have these swank silver balloons at their table so you can zero in on some of the absolute best stuff on offer at SPX.
I cannot contain my excitement about the friggin’ balloons.
HOW DO I CAST MY VOTE
As you enter the show you will be provided a ballot. YOU ARE SWORN AND HONOR BOUND TO COMPLETE THIS SACRED TASK. Consider it practice for November. You can drop completed ballots in one of the boxes designated for this task (I might even be holding it).
DO I GET A PRIZE?
Aside from fulfilling your civic duty, when you do, we’ll hand you one of these “I Voted” buttons featuring Darryl Ayo’s version of Ignatz. No other way, place or time to get’em!
SO HOW DO I KNOW WHO WON?
Join us for the Ignatz Awards at 9:30 PM on Saturday night. The event will be held in the White Oak Room downstairs at the hotel. We’ve got Jerzy Drozd hosting and a bevy of celebrity award presenters and our FIRST EVER RED CARPET WALK.
Every good awards show deserves the red carpet treatment and the Ignatz Awards are no exception. Join Shannon and Stacy, the “Joan and Melissa” of the indie comics set, on the red carpet before the Ignatz Awards. They will be talking to the hoi polloi of the Small Press Expo on their way into the White Oak Auditorium before the show.
The deservedly legendary chocolate fountain after party follows featuring the win-lose-or-fatality artistic stylings of SUPER ART FIGHT!
It is going to be a thing!
