Eagle Awards 2011

2011 Eagle Awards Voting Opens

Due to my ongoing technical problems this is going up a little late, but nevertheless: the voting selection for the 2011 Eagle Awards is now up.

It’s a vast and varied list, too, comprising 29 categories. Voting will close at midnight BST on Monday 11 April, and the winners will be announced at the MCM Expo London Comic Con on Friday 27 May.

Having recently helped organise a national publicly voted awards ceremony myself, I now have even greater reservations towards anything which relies on the general consensus. But I still look forward to seeing what titles and creators are the preferred choice of other comic readers, if not necessarily the best choice – though I’m fully aware that whatever I/you/we think deserve to win is equally subjective.
