About the SPACE Prize

From the books which were collected for the Day Prize at SPACE 2008, we will be awarding the 2008 SPACE Prize.  Losing the Day Prize is small consolation for having regularly produced Dave Sim work on comic store shelves.  We'd like to thank Dave Sim for having the Day Prize here at SPACE for the last 7 years and wish him the best on his projects Glamourpuss and Judenhass.  So we will push on with the example he set and award the first annual SPACE Prize. Below are the finalists.   The winner will be picked from three voting bodies.  Two rotating judges and the registered SPACE 2008 Exhibitors. I'm proud to say our judges for this year are the 2007 Day Prize winners, Matt and Carol Dembicki (acting as one legal entity), and the God-father of Small Press Comics, Tim Corrigan.

The winner will win a cash prize of $300.00 and a plaque. The plaque presentation will be held during SPACE 2009 on April 18 and 19, 2009 at the Aladdin Shire Center in Columbus.
