India Comic Con Puts Out 2013 Awards Call; Announces Intention To Honor The Late Mario Miranda


The India Comic Con shot out a press release this morning dated November 22 -- meaning I think that this information has been out there but they're now trying to get it out there in more effective fashion -- for their 2013 CCI Awards, calling for entries to be made before January 1 in the following categories:

* Best Graphic Novel/Comic Book Of The Year
* Best Penciller/Inker/Penciller-Inker Team
* Best Colorist
* Best Cover
* Best Writer
* Best Continuing Graphic Series
* Best Graphic Anthology
* Best Children's Illustrated Book (13 And Under)
* Best Children's Illustrated Book (13 And Over)
* Best Publication For Children
* Best Web-Only/Digital-Only Comic
* Best Children's Writer (13 And Under)
* The Comic-Con India Grant For Best Unpublished Work

That last award is interesting as it guarantees the winner a publishing contract with the convention and has a $1400 cash prize that can be put towards finishing the project in question.

The convention also announced that its lifetime achievement award would go to the extremely talented late cartoonist Mario Miranda.

The con is held February 8-10 this year; the awards ceremony will be February 7. RK Laxman won the lifetime achivement award in 2012.

The awards program jury for this year is Neelabh Banerjee, Vaibhav Kumaresh and Abhishek Sharma. They will process the entires into a short list.

The web site is here; questions can e-mail (on the awards) or (on the grant).
