Meant to link to this press release earlier, but I'm lazy. Or distracted. I mean, after all, my favorite kids come back to visit tomorrow.

Anyway, enough about my nail biting. On to the press release:


The voting period for 2004's Rec.Arts.Comics Awards (popularly known as "The Squiddies") is underway.

The Squiddies are the rec.arts.comics newsgroups' annual comics industry awards. Except for the CBG awards, no still-existing industry award is older. Known originally as "the Great Usenet Comics Poll," the Squiddies have been continuously awarded every year since the mid-1980's.

All readers of any of the rec.arts.comics.* newsgroups are invited to vote. Whether fan or professional, lurker or poster, occasional or regular reader, we want to hear from you. Last year, vote totals in many categories were extremely close. Every vote makes a difference--including yours.

Copies of the ballot have been posted to the following newsgroups:


You can also get a copy via Google Groups.

If you would like to publicize the voting, feel free to distribute copies of this announcement.

This year's voting period will run from Friday, 1 April 2005 through Sunday, 24 April 2005. Run-offs will take place after the voting, if required. Winners will be announced later in May.

The 2004 Squiddies are being administered by Johanna Draper Carlson and Carl Henderson. If you have any questions, or have problems finding an official copy of the ballot, please email questions2004 at squiddies dot org.
