New award celebrates the best in graphic fiction

A thrilling new award has been launched to celebrate the best in graphic fiction.

The inaugural 9th Art Award, established by Graphic Scotland, will honour the best work of graphic literature originally written and published in English between May 2012 and July 2013.

The winner will be selected by a stellar judging panel featuring graphic fiction historian Paul Gravett, acclaimed arts critic and writer Hannah McGill, Costa award-winning writer Mary Talbot and Adrian Searle, publisher at Freight Press.

The winner will be announced during a special event at the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August.

Submissions are now open and full details of the competition and how to enter can be found on the 9th Art Award website.
