It’s a wrap!

The organizers of the 2005 Doug Wright Awards would like to thank everyone who helped make the inaugural edition such a success. There’s no way we could have pulled it off without the dedication of our tireless volunteers and the financial help of many ‘comic-friendly’ businesses. I think Doug himself would have been proud – so thanks all around!

In other news we’re happy to announce that The Wright Awards will now be an annual event, with a new round of trophies scheduled to be handed out in spring 2006. The categories of Best Emerging Talent and Best Book will remain, with winners receiving a splendid trophy and the respect of their peers and the industry.

All submissions for the 2006 Wrights must have been published between Jan. 1, 2005 and Dec. 31 2005, and must be created by Canadian cartoonists. For the present time, only English-language (or wordless) comics can be considered. (Sorry).
