‘Cyclopedia Exotica,’ ‘The Magic Fish’ and more nominated for 2021 Harvey Awards

The winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony this fall.

The Harvey Awards have revealed their nominees for 2021 across the six categories they reintroduced in 2018, as chosen by a nominating committee of “diverse industry voices including creators, publishing professionals, retailers, educators and librarians.”

The awards are given out annually in conjunction with the October-held New York Comic Con. Like last year, this year they plan to livestream the ceremony rather than present them in person.

The winners will be chosen by creators and other industry professionals. If you’d like to apply to participate in selecting this year’s Harvey Awards, you can visit the Harvey Awards Apply to Vote page.
