This year at the Lulu Awards we have two new categories:
Leah Adezio Award for Best Kid-Friendly Work:
Leah, who passed away in 2007, was very active in Friends of Lulu and was also comics creator in her own right. She had a passion for children’s comics and this award is in memory of her. This award is for a kid-friendly work that best exemplifies the Friends of Lulu motto “Comics Are For Everyone.”
Best Female Character:
For a lead female character from an ongoing or limited comic book series or comic strip, original graphic novel or novella. Whether in print or online.
These categories are in addition to our established set of four:
Kim Yale Award for Most Talented Newcomer
Nominees must have published work, whether self-published, company-published, or net-published. Nominees must be nominated for this category within two years of their first professionally published work or three years of their first self published work. An individual may not be nominated more than twice and cannot win more than once.
Lulu of the Year
For the creator, book or other entity whose work best exemplifies Friends of Lulu’s mission statement. Nominees must have published work, whether self-published, company-published, or net-published.
Woman of Distinction
For outstanding achievement within the comic book industry in non-creator roles, such as editing, publishing, reporting, or retail.
The Female Cartoonists Hall Of Fame
