Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards

The 2024 EGL Awards: The Biggest Ever! 

The 7th annual Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards, celebrating the very best graphic novels released in 2023, are now underway.

With more than 250 title submissions from 94 publishers and imprints, this year’s Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards is shaping up to be our largest ever.

This year, we shipped more than 500 pounds of graphic novels, comics collections, and manga to the expert educators, librarians, and academics across the country who will serve as this year’s jurors.

This year’s jurors have already begun their work, and finalists will be announced in June.

The Excellence in Graphic Literature Awards help:

  • Educators and librarians: Identify high-quality graphic literature to use in diverse educational settings.
  • Publishers: Highlight works that make a significant contribution to graphic literature and promote substantive pop culture education.
  • Parents, pop culture fans, and other discerning readers: Find compelling, expertly crafted graphic literature to read and enjoy.
