The Howard E. Day Memorial Prize

Dave Sim, creator of Cerebus and one of the comics industry?s leading advocates of small- and self-publishing, awards the Howard Eugene Day Memorial Award annually.

The award is named in honor of Gene Day, Sim?s mentor in his early years in comics, and is awarded in connection with the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (SPACE) held in Columbus, Ohio. Entries are submitted by the exhibitors of that show with the nominees and winner chosen by Sim and Gerhard.

Recipients of the Day Prize receive a commemorative plaque, a check for five hundred dollars.
