Named after the late comics genius Harvey Kurtzman, the Harvey Awards honor outstanding work in comics and sequential art. Harvey Kurtzman (1924-1993) was a cartoonist, writer, editor and the founder of MAD Magazine. Nominations for the Harvey Awards are selected exclusively by comics creators -- those who write, draw, ink, letter, color, design, edit or are otherwise involved in a creative process. The awards have 20 categories, ranging from Best New Talent to Best Cartoonist. To be eligible for this year's awards, a title or work must have been published between January 1 and December 31, 2000. The 2001 Harvey Awards Ceremony will be held as part of the Pittsburgh Comicon. For more information, contact Denis Kitchen at: Tel.: (413) 586-9844; or E-mail: email@example.com
