Missed It: Your 2013 Observer/Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize Winner Is Emily Haworth-Booth


I completely missed this weekend's announcement that Emily Haworth-Booth won this year's Observer/Cape/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize for her comic "Colonic." That's an award of interest for its canny team-up of media interests and for how it throws a spotlight on the increasingly rich comics-making scene in Great Britain.

Michael Parkin won runner-up for his story "Lines." That was apparently a four-page version of a longer, pre-existing story, something that Parkin put together to meet the contest's four-page requirement.

The winners were selected from over 180 initial entries.

I believe this is the competition's seventh year. Past winners include Corban Wilkin, Julian Hanshaw and Stephen Collins. Collins was one of the judges this year.

The Haworth-Booth story is viewable here; the Parkin here.

Both Haworth-Booth and Park will have their work exhibited as part of the Comica Festival, now going.
