Your 2012 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant Recipients
Prism Comics announced the recipients of the 2012 Queer Press Grant on Saturday during Just Hall's Queer Cartoonists Panel at the Alternative Press Expo. The winners were Blue Delliquanti for the graphic novel O Human Star, and Christine Smith for The Princess.
The grant was established in 2005. With the Xeric Foundation gone, it is to my knowledge the only independent grant of its sort right now within comics publishing. Submissions are reviewed by the Prism Board, past recipients of the Grant, and Prism's Advisory Board. The award is funded entirely by donations.
