LDC Award Ceremony 2020

The awards mission is to celebrate the diverse voices of female-identifying graphic novelists in the UK, spotlighting narratives that give new perspectives on the real dramas of the everyday!

The shortlist will be announced by mid-February and the overall prize winner will be announced at the LDComics festival on Sunday 29 March, 5.30-7.30pm at the Free Word Centre, London.


Publisher Presentations

Last year we invited publishers personally connected to LDComics to host stalls during the public day and give illustrated talks about how to get your project published.

We invited Good Comics, Liminal 11, Myriad Editions, SelfMadeHero and Unbound. In addition we invited Gemma Seltzer from Kickstarter to give a presentation about how Kickstarter can assist our projects.

Watch this space for details on talks for 2020 festival!
