2010 NCS Division Awards: Call for Entries

January 11th, 2011 | Posted in News

Every year the National Cartoonists Society gets together for a weekend of fun, seminars and speakers culminating in the Reuben Awards dinner. Known as the Oscars of cartooning, the Reuben Awards honors the “Cartoonist of the Year” with the coveted “Reuben” and also recognizes many other cartoonists for excellence in a variety of categories.

It’s that time of year again, and entries for consideration for the various divisions are due on February 6th.

It’s important to understand these awards are for excellence in professional cartooning as a whole, not for NCS members only. You do not have to be a member to be considered for a divisional award. The only criteria for entry is that the work is professionally published (i.e. not self published) in 2010. Actually they include the final month of the previous year as well, so the work must be documented as published between December 1st, 2009 and December 31st, 2010.

Here’s the rundown of the what, where and when from the National Cartoonists Society website, including links to the entry form and bio sheet:

It’s time to prepare your entry for the National Cartoonists Society
Division Awards.

Below, you will see the list of the juries which will judge the categories, the jury chair and the address to which you will send your
entry.

Please remember only recent work can be considered. This means work published between the dates of December 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010. Please submit published tear sheets when possible and document when and where the work was published. Members of the National Cartoonists Society and nonmembers may submit.

Each entry must be accompanied by a completed ENTRY FORM and a BIO SHEET.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL SUBMISSIONS TO BE PRINTED AND MAILED. NO EMAIL SUBMISSIONS PLEASE.

The winners will be announced at the 65th Annual Reuben Awards Dinner on May 28, 2011.
