The Doug Wright Awards go to the best in English-language Canadian comics. Two of the awards are self-explanatory, and the Pigskin Peters award is for unconventional, "nominally-narrative" comics. This year's nominating panel was panel: Jeet Heer, Jerry Ciccoritti, Chester Brown, Sean Rogers and Bryan Munn. The winners-choosing jury was Geoff Pevere, Carl Wilson, Matt Forsythe and Fiona Smyth.
