ELMER Nomination

ELMER is nominated for "Best Comics Series", and the Philippine Comics Art Museum is nominated for "Comics Aid" at the Komikon Awards for this year's Komikon to be held on October 21, 2006 at the UP Bahay ng Alumni.

Komikon is organized by Artists Den.

This is quite a pleasant surprise. I haven't been nominated, much less won any sort of award for my comics work. Although I was part of SIGLO: Freedom, a book that did win a Manila Critic's Award for Best Comic Book a couple of years ago, I haven't had anything like this just for my own work. And it's really cool.
