2016 Doug Wright Awards

 

Friday, April 29, 2016 - 12:15pm

I’m delighted to announce that several recent OCADU alumni have been nominated for the 2016 Doug Wright Awards, Canada’s premier comic awards.

The Doug Wright Awards were founded in May 2005 as a means of casting light on the wide range of cartoonists and comic artists working across Canada. 

Ted Gudlat (OCADU 2012), OCADU ILLU Program Teaching Assistant Sabrina Scott (OCADU 2012), and Kat Verhoeven (OCADU 2010) are nominees for the 2016 Doug Wright Spotlight Award which recognizes Canadian cartoonists deserving of wider recognition. 

In addition, ILLU instructor Patrick Kyle (OCADU 2009) has been nominated for the Pigskin Peters Award which recognizes experimental, unconventional, and avant-garde Canadian comics.
