Your Ping Prisen 2014 Nominees

image

This is a nice-looking awards slate from Denmark: announced here in the form slightly adpated below and here in a clever visual interface. I'd go to the second just to look at it, even if the list below makes your eyes glaze over, being a list and everything. It's a nice snapshot of the way one country is processing comics in terms of a mix of homegrown and international talent. Alan Moore, Jaime Hernandez, Matt Fraction, Paul Pope and Simon Hanselmann are among the nominees perhaps more instantly familiar to readers of the site.

I also like the fact that it seems like this is a juried award made of contributors to two magazines, Nummer9 and Strip! It's a revival of an older awards program. Winners will be announced June 7.
