Advisory Board

The EGL Advisory Board

The members of our Blue Ribbon advisory board are established members of the publishing, retail, distribution as well as library, education, and academic worlds.   They are some of the most forward-thinking people who provide insights, advice and direction to help give the Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards a strong foundation.

Our advisory board members provide regular input on the development of the program in areas such as communications, structure, market development and integrity. 

With their talents and that of our jury members, we know we have invested our energies into an idea that will generate a greater emphasis on the value of the graphic novel format and the comics medium.
