Official Press Release
What was your favourite comic of 2010? Which artists and writers really grabbed your attention? Nominations open on Friday 4 February and run until 7 March for the world-famous Eagle Awards, so head on over to www.eagleawards.co.uk to make your voice heard!
The top five nominations in each section will then be verified and voting gets underway on 14 March – let us know who you want to see honoured on the big night of 27 May at the London MCM Expo by picking your favourites of 2010.
Once again the awards ceremony will be streamed LIVE to the world over the internet via www.mcmbuzz.com which proved extremely popular in 2010.
Introduced in 1976, the Eagles are the comics industry’s most prestigious fan-selected awards, giving the entire comics community the opportunity to vote for the finest publications and brightest talent of the past year, with categories covering the whole world of comics, including manga, movies and webcomics.
MCM Expo Group managing director Paul Miley and the Eagle Awards’ Cassandra Conroy are delighted to announce that going forward the Eagle Awards will be co-owned and organised equally by both parties.
Last October the Eagles moved to their new home at London MCM Expo, London’s Comic Con – www.londonexpo.com – and 2011 sees the awards return to Excel once again – this time back in their traditional May slot.
“All nominees will be invited to the Awards Ceremony at May’s London MCM Expo and the winners will be offered the opportunity to give an acceptance speech,” said Cassandra Conroy. “The full list of Award Winners will be released to the world 27 May.”
