The Cartoonist Studio Prize
The Center for Cartoon Studies and The Beat are proud to announce the eleventh annual Cartoonist Studio Prize
Each year the Cartoonist Studio Prize will be awarded to work that exemplifies excellence in cartooning. The creators of two exceptional comics for this year will be awarded $1,000 each. The winners will be selected by The Beat and The Schulz Library staff at The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS).
The two award categories for the Cartoonist Studio Prize are Print Comic of the Year and Web Comic of the Year. Finalists for each category will be announced in April. The two winning comics will be announced shortly after.
- Eligible print comics must be written in (or translated into) English and published between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of 2022. Creators or publishers may submit a print comic for consideration by clicking here.
- Eligible web comics must be written in (or translated into) English and published online between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of 2022. Creators or publishers may submit a web comic for consideration by clicking here.
Submissions in both categories must be received by January 30, 2023.
Currently enrolled CCS students and faculty are not eligible for the award. Creators may submit one—and no more than one—work in each of the two categories. The judging panel reserves the right to consider work that was not officially submitted.
Creators or publishers may submit a work for consideration by sending a physical copy of the book, along with a submission form, to:
The Center for Cartoon Studies

PO Box 125
94 South Main Street (Fed Ex and UPS only)

No creator may submit more than one work in either category. The judging panel reserves the right to consider work that was not officially submitted.
