About the SPACE Prize

From the books which were collected at SPACE 2009, we will be awarding the
2009 SPACE Prizes. This year there will be prizes presented in three categories-
General, Minicomic / Short Story and  Webcomic.The winner will be picked from three voting bodies in each category.
Two rotating judges and the registered SPACE 2009 Exhibitors.
I'm proud to announce our  judges for this year include J. Caleb Mozzocco (Everyday is Like Wednesday blogger),
Max Ink (Blink), and the God-father of Small Press Comics, Tim Corrigan.  More judges to be announced soon.

The winner of the General SPACE prize will win a cash prize of $300.00 and a plaque.
The winners of the Minicomic / Short Story  and Webcomic categories will each win a $50.00 cash prize and a plaque.
 The plaque presentation will be held during SPACE 2010 on April 24 and 25, 2010 at the
Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center in Columbus.

The General Category:
All comics that do not fit into the mini-comics/short story category qualify for the general category.
In the General category if an anthology wins the editor/publisher will win the prize not each of the individual contributors.
If you are a contributor to an anthology and you want your individual story considered please enter it under the
mini-comic/ short story category.
The Mini-comics/short story Category:
Only mini-comics 5-1/2X8-1/2 maximum size and a maximum of 28 interior pages or a short story in an anthology up
to a 16 page story can be submitted for this category.
You can debate what a minicomic is at the forums but for the purposes of the SPACE Prize this is it.
The Webcomic Category:
Any comic that was posted on-line between March 3, 2008 and April 18, 2009 by SPACE 2009 exhibitor
can be submitted for this category.
