Carroll, Gilbert and Rabagliati win 2014 Doug Wright Awards

The winners of the 2014 Doug Wright Awards, recognizing the best in English-language comics by Canadians, were announced Friday in conjunction with the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. This year’s recipients were:

Best Book: Paul Joins the Scouts, by Michel Rabagliati (Conundrum Press)

The Spotlight Award (aka “The Nipper”): Steven Gilbert for The Journal of the Main Street Secret Lodge

Pigskin Peters Awards (for experimental or avant-garde work): Out of Skin, by Emily Carroll

In addition, the four surviving artists of the Canadian Whites, the black-and-white comic books that proliferated during World War II because of restrictions on the trade of non-essential goods from the United States, were inducted into The Giants of the North: The Canadian Cartoonists Hall of Fame.

The awards are named for Doug Wright, the late cartoonist whose strip Doug Wright’s Family appeared for more than 30 years in newspapers across the country.
