Accepting Nominations for PNCA Graphic Literature Award
August 09, 2011
Literary Arts is currently accepting nominations for the new Oregon Book Award in Graphic Literature, a new award sponsored by PNCA which honors outstanding published work by Oregon cartoonists and graphic novelists. The award was created in April 2011 amid a week that included a visit to Portland by award-winning graphic novelist Art Spiegelman, author of Maus. In addition to speaking for Literary Arts, Spiegelman visited the PNCA campus, meeting with students and holding a conversation with Portland-based graphic novelist Joe Sacco on Tragedy, Comedy and Truth in Comics.
PNCA’s increasingly popular illustration program emphasizes a strong interdependence between timeless technical mastery and contemporary marketplace savvy.
The deadline for submissions for the Oregon Book Award in Graphic Literature is Friday, August 26 at 5 pm.
