Winners of the spring Xeric Foundation award have been announced. I’ve been able to determine that at least one is Canadian: Toronto’s Adam Bourret for his project “I’m Crazy.” There are at least two other winners whose hometown I’ve been unable to determine.
The Xeric Foundation is a private, nonprofit corporation established by Peter A. Laird, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Planet Racers.
The Foundation offers financial assistance to committed, self-publishing comic book creators and qualified charitable and nonprofit organizations. The geographical consideration for comic book artists is the United States and Canada. You must be a citizen and current resident of either country. Charitable and nonprofit organizations must be located in Western Massachusetts.
