Open Call For Judges

Posted on 02. Nov, 2021 by in Uncategorized

We’re looking for people interested in judging the 2022 Doug Wright Awards. Entries in each category are evaluated by a three-member jury. Each jury consists of at least one cartoonist, one judge with industry expertise (editor, publisher, reviewer, journalist, librarian, bookseller, academic, etc.), and a third judge who either falls into one of the previous categories or is not directly involved in the industry but has a deep knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the comics medium. 
We would like our juries to be as diverse as possible, with judges from a variety of professional backgrounds, from a variety of regions (not necessarily confined to Canada), and who reflect Canada’s various cultural communities. 
Judges are given approximately four weeks to read entries and make their final decision. Juries meet via conference call to deliberate and come to a consensus on their category’s short list and winner. 
This currently is a volunteer position, though you’ll walk away with a good-sized stack of comics.
