2015 Queer Press Grant Now Accepting Submissions
Prism Comics have announced that they are now accepting submissions for this year’s Queer Press Grant. The Queer Press Grant is specifically awarded to independent queer comic book creators. The grant was established by Prism Comics in 2003 to assist in the publication, and promotion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender comics.
Comic books, comic strips, webcomics, and graphic novel projects are all eligible. Entries are judged first and foremost by artistic merit, followed by concerns such as financial need, proposal presentation, and the project’s contribution to the LGBT community.
The submission deadline for the QPG is March 10th, 2015, with the recipient announced during Wondercon Anaheim, April 3-5th. Applicants can submit online now at prismcomics.org/grant.
The $2000.00 Queer Press Grant is funded by donations from comic book professionals, readers, and the fundraising efforts of Prism Comics members. For those interested in donating to the Queer Press Grant you may do so here.
