2009 Lulu Award Winners


We are very happy to announce the 2009 Lulu Award Winners!

Each winner will be contacted individually and an engraved & personalized award will be shipped out to them. We also have a post profiling each winner, with resource links to learn more about them and support their work.

Just as a recap, The Lulu Awards recognizes the people and projects that helped to open eyes and minds to the amazing comic and cartooning work by and/or about women. the nominees were voted on by a panel of judges, and the actual awards voted on by the public.

But before I announce the awards, a word about how you can help Friends of Lulu. The #1 thing we need right now are volunteers, especially volunteers with skills in business, publishing, journalism, accounting, marketing/PR and teaching/mentoring. Please contact me directly at valerie dot dorazio at gmail dot com if you are interested in volunteering and/or running for one of our National Board positions for 2010.

Now, for the awards…
