Nominations Underway – Part Two: Round 1 (Advancing to Round 2)

jsa-yr-4-revised-logo-solo2.jpg

Please note: we do this for the purpose of transparency.

Currently underway is the nomination process for the annual Joe Shuster Awards. The 20 members of the nominating committees (there are 2) have tabled their initial selections.

We have two concurrent committees one for English language releases, and another for French. Ultimately we aim to have 7 nominees for each of these four categories – 5 English and 2 French. In the case of a tie, we may advance an additional nominee, increasing the final number of nominees in that category to no more than 8.

Results Round 1 – Having Received 2 or more nominations – therefore advancing to Round Two. Please note: this is not the final nominations list, the final nominations will come from within this list.

ENGLISH

The following creators were selected by more than one member of the 16 member English Language Nominating Committee and therefore advance to Round 2 (the overall rankings where all are considered by every member). Any creator appearing on 8 or more of the the NomCom short lists automatically bypasses Round 2 and is on the final ballot (but we won’t be sharing who they were until the final press release).
