The Harvey Awards revealed the new categories and nominees for the upcoming 30th Anniversary celebration of the awards celebrating Harvey Kurtzman.

The new award categories are: Book of the Year, Digital Book of the Year, Best Children or Young Adult Book, Best Adaptation from a Comic Book/Graphic Novel, Best Manga, and Best European Book.  The awards will be voted on by eligible industry professionals, which includes librarians, educators, retailers, and anyone who has been approved for a Pro Badge or Artist Alley Badge at a 2016, 2017, or 2018 ReedPOP comic convention. Voting runs through September 3.  The winners will be announced at an event held by ReedPOP on the Friday of New York Comic Con, October 5 at 8:30 pm.

The Harvey Awards announced plans to move to New York Comic Con last summer (see “Harvey Awards Move to New York Comic Con”), and the category changes were revealed at the end of June (see “Harvey Awards Emphasize Graphic Novels with New Categories”).
