BALTIMORE, MD - The Executive Committees of the Harvey Awards and the Baltimore Comic-Con wish to remind eligible voters that the deadline for the official Nomination Ballot for this year's Harvey Awards, honoring work published in the 2014 calendar year, is now one week away. Named in honor of the late Harvey Kurtzman, one of the industry's most innovative talents, the Harvey Awards recognize outstanding work in comics and sequential art. The 28th Annual Harvey Awards will be presented Saturday, September 26th, 2015 as part of the Baltimore Comic-Con.
Harvey Awards nomination ballots may now be submitted using an online form. If you are a comics professional, you can vote online at harveyawards.org/2015-nomination-ballot/. Ballots are due for submission by Monday, May 11th, 2015.
