Bob has sent out a group email that the Day Prize for next year has been cancelled.. sort of. Dave Sim has canceled his appearance at next year’s show along with the Day Prize. However Bob will be giving out a S.P.A.C.E. prize.
Bob- ‘I will review the books and pick 4 to 6 finalists and then have the registered SPACE 2008 Exhibitors vote for the winner. One of the few rules will be that you can’t vote for yourself (or a book you’re in). The winner will win a cash prize of $300.00 (sorry I can’t afford the $500.00) and a plaque (or figure, that’s not finalized yet). I haven’t figured out the time table yet but the plaque presentation will be during SPACE 2009.’
Anyone who wants their book(s) sent back, contact Bob and he’ll send them back.
Please note that this is not limited to just SPACE, Sim has scaled back all his appearances to just local shows. It’s been great having him at the show and I hope one year he’ll come back.
