Nominations for the Harvey Awards are selected exclusively by creators – those who write, draw, ink, letter, color, design, edit or are otherwise involved in a creative capacity in the comics field. The Harvey Awards are the only industry awards both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.
The Harveys would not be possible without the generous sponsors of the Awards. Sponsors for the 2010 Harvey Awards included DC Comics, ComiXology, IDW Publishing, Brett’s Comic Pile, Painted Visions Comics, Cards, & Games, Richmond Comix, and the Baltimore Comic-Con. We look forward to welcoming current and new sponsors to be a part of the 2011 Harvey Awards.
