The selection process is currently underway for the 2017 nominees, we are currently looking to announce the nominees on or around Canada Day (July 1) and are looking to hand out or at the very least announce the award winners in Toronto on Labour Day Weekend (Labour Day is September 4).
We have also received a large number of entries for the Gene Day Award, many past the deadline of May 15. We’ll allow these entries up to a grace period of Friday, June 23rd (as two more postal receipts arrived today to be picked up).
2017 is Canada’s 150th birthday and the 13th year of the Joe Shuster Awards. We are currently opening a call for sponsorships for this year’s awards. Interested businesses should contact email@example.com for information.
