My name's on the longlist! Shortlist to be announced later this month and winners TBA at the end of March. The brief was to submit just 12 pages of a graphic novel-in-progress which will eventually be at least 200 pages.
So that's what I sent, Double Entendre, the graphic novel I've been working on sporadically for quite a while. It's still got a long way to go but would certainly benefit from a boost of encouragement such as this.
Mine is on the second row, first on the left. These are not the final books (obviously, since the Award is for work in progress) and only contain the few sample pages submitted to the judges.
Below is my temporary cover. It will probably change before the book is finished.
