Dear Inkers,

The Inkwell Awards, the only non-profit organization devoted to public education and promotion of the art of comic book inking, is asking fans and professionals to choose their industry favorites in this years INKEWELL AWARDS

The official public ballot will be available on the Inkwells‘ homepage from February 23rd through 29th.

Voting is open to all in five categories:
:bulletred: Favorite Inker
:bulletred: Most Adaptable
:bulletred: Props (inkers deserving more attention),
:bulletred: The S.P.A.M.I. (Small Press And Mainstream/Independent for non-Marvel/DC work)
:bulletred: All-In-One for artists who ink their own pencils.

The ballot covers all printed American comic books cover-dated 2019.

“This is the second ballot with our revamped nomination procedure where inkers could submit their work in addition to those chosen by our internal nomination committee,” said Bob Almond, founder and director of The Inkwell Awards. “It made a huge difference and we’re thrilled to see many inkers submit their own work and several get nominated.”

He also added, “For years, too many inkers are passed over and go unnoticed by most awards events. Ours caters specifically to ink artists, allowing them to be recognized and appreciated for their best work. We encourage any and all who appreciate great artwork to participate and share on social media; the more voters, the better.”

The winners, along with the internally-chosen lifetime achievement accolades, the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame award and the Stacey Aragon Special Recognition Award (SASRA), will be announced at the live awards ceremony during The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! in Oaks, PA the weekend of April 3rd-5th.

The Inkwell Awards is the only official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and educate regarding the art form of comic-book inking, as well as annually recognize the best ink artists and their work. Established in 2008, the Inkwells are overseen by a volunteer committee of industry professionals and assisted by various professional ambassadors and contributors. They sponsor the Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Fund for the Kubert School and host the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award.

Hi guy's, I'm a published comics writer, who is looking for an inker for Reality issues 3-5 (1 has been published, 2 is soon to be published). I This would be a back end deal with you getting 10% of profits, essentally making you a partner in the comic. It would be a great opportunity for you to gain some experience on a book that will be published, thus giving you published work for your portfolio.  If interested please email on or message me here.

Hi Darkernite,

If you would like to solicit a member of the group for some work you should send a note to the admin(s) who will then post it to the group. This isn't a group to advertise work and I will have to remove your post. 

Many thanks.
