The 15th Annual Joe Shuster Awards are being held this Saturday, September 14th at 7pm and should run for about an 60-90 minutes and will be followed by an afterparty.
This is a casual, laid back affair, and the awards will be hosted by myself (Awards Director and Co-Founder Kevin A. Boyd) with Jenn and Robert Haines of The Dragon.
Because our nominees come from far and wide, not all nominees will be present. We are expecting some nominees and inductees to be present, though.
The location is:
10C Shared Space
Guelph, Ontario N1H 3A2
They are being held in conjunction with THE GUELPH COMIC BOOK JAM at the Old Quebec Street Mall in Guelph, ON., home of The Dragon’s main location.
The address is 55 Wyndham St N, Guelph, ON N1H 7T8
