The Irish Comics News have just opened up the voting for this years awards and you have 2 weeks to get your nominations in – closing the 16th November.

Week after week we see the big name comic creators dazzle us in the latest DC/Marvel/Dark Horse/Image/IDW release but there’s just as much to be said for the home grown talent that we perhaps don’t get as much of a chance to acknowledge or even read.  Hopefully that’s changing as we see the comic scene thrive in both the UK and Ireland and that’s been true for us mere bloggers.  Our attendance at Con’s around the UK/Ireland & the world in some cases let us gain much more exposure to those self-published & indie titles.

There’s a number of categories in the awards to consider:

BEST INDY IRISH ARTIST (includes pencilers, inkers, colourists)

BEST INDY PUBLISHED IRISH WRITER

BEST MAINSTREAM PUBLISHED IRISH ARTIST (includes pencilers, inkers, colourists)

BEST MAINSTREAM PUBLISHED IRISH WRITER

BEST IRISH WEB OR DIGITAL COMIC

BEST IRISH INDY COMIC

BEST IRISH CREATOR MAINSTREAM PUBLISHED COMIC

BEST IRISH COMIC RELATED BLOG/WEBSITE (ICN is exempt)

BEST IRISH COMIC SHOP

OVERALL BEST IRISH COMIC

BEST COMIC RELATED/FEATURED IRISH PODCAST

HALL OF FAME (individual)

HALL OF FAME (comic)

Awards like the ICN’s push that awareness further and if you head on over to their website you’ll be able to do two things.  Firstly, you’ll be able to cast your votes and secondly, and maybe more importantly, you’ll start to pick up the names of writers, artists & creators that you NEED to be looking out for.  Some less known than others but there’s some key names and titles that stand out.  Even some that we’ve reviewed here on the blog – Nestor, Zombies Hi and Venom to name but a few.
