Added May 15: This video tribute is a nice showcase of the Best Book nominees.
On the evening of Saturday May 9, the 2010 Doug Wright Awards for Canadian “cartooning” – as it was described so quaintly at Friday night’s TCAF kickoff event with Daniel Clowes – were handed out to the following individuals:
- Best Book went to Seth for George Sprott (Drawn and Quarterly)
- Best Emerging Talent: Michael DeForge whose work includes Lose #1 (Koyama Press) and Cold Heat Special #7 (Picturebox)
- Also something called the Pigskin Peters Award, a category described as unconventional, “nominally-narrative” comics: another D+Q book, Hot Potatoe by Marc Bell
- Martin Vaughn-Smith was named to this year’s Hall of Fame
