Site updates & General Progress: February 2009

jsalogoToday we published the eligible list of creators who had work printed in French language publications. (See the pages section on the right). Thank you to our BD Coordinator Francis Hervieux for compiling the list! Francis is also coordinating the French Language Nominating Committee.

Yesterday the Webcomics Coordinator published his list of eligible webcomics from 2008.

We’ve also reshuffled the pages on the right to have proper sub-sections and header pages.

Visually, we are working on making the text a little easier to read. While we are pleased with the overall design theme, there are still some tweaks to be made with the colours.

The Nominating Committees are all hard at work making their selections for the 2009 Awards. The first round of nominating officially ends at the end of this month (February) and we begin the second round in early March. The final ballot will be announced on Wednesday, April 1st, 2009.

There has been a change in the art team for the 2009 Joe Shuster Awards event poster. The artwork for the poster is now being produced by Francis Manapul and Agnes Garbowska.
