The Slate Book Review and the Center for Cartoon Studies are proud to announce the second annual Cartoonist Studio Prize!

Each year the Cartoonist Studio Prize will be awarded to work that exemplifies excellence in cartooning. (Last year’s winners: Chris Ware and Noelle Stevenson.) The creators of two exceptional comics will be awarded $1,000 each. In addition, this year award sponsor Copic is providing each winner with $250 of art supplies. Winners will be selected by Slate Book Review editor Dan Kois, the faculty and students of the Center for Cartoon Studies, and a distinguished guest judge. This year’s guest judge will be Christopher Butcher of the world-famous comic book store the Beguiling and co-founder of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

The two award categories for the Cartoonist Studio Prize are Graphic Novel of the Year and Web Comic of the Year. Finalists for each category will be announced Feb. 1, 2014. The two winning comics will be announced March 1, 2014.
