“The Beagle Awards are an alternative, but not a rival, to the prestigious Eagle Awards. The Beagle Awards celebrate the best of the small press as voted for by you, the buying public. The Beagle Awards will be held at the Bristol Comic Con in May.”
Keep your eyes here:
We investigated the possibility of setting up some sort of Awards at Caption last year, but while the idea received mixed enthusiasm, it was decided that Caption‘s ethos of not trying to raise any creator above the rest would not sit well with handing out awards, particularly as most Caption organisers past and present, being creators themselves, would also be potential contenders for such an award, unless they removed themselves from competition.
Whether the Beagle Awards have come about because of the discussion at Caption, or just because it’s an idea whose time has come, more power to them for doing it.
