Lulu throws awards open
When I was in Friends of Lulu, one of the main incentives to keep up membership was the opportunity to vote in the annual Lulu Awards, given to women of distinction whose contributions to comics kept getting ignored year after year by the major comics awards.
Now an era appears to have come to an end, as the organization has decided, for the first time ever, to open the award nominations and voting to non-members.
Details can be found on Adalisa Zarate’s blog. The nomination form is here, and the deadline for nominations is May 7. Here’s your chance to help recognize all the women who are still getting passed over by the boys’ club mentality of so many other awards processes, as well as celebrate those who are finally being noticed elsewhere.
