I just got some exciting news from Brian Cremins. CAKE has created a new minicomics award that will debut at the 2015 show. The winner will get a half table at CAKE and a small cash award ($250 towards printing costs), and it will go to an emerging cartoonists (only cartoonists who have yet to have a solo work published by a publisher are eligible). The winner will also get some mentoring from Annie Koyama (who will choose the winner from 20 nominees).
Applications are due August 31.
