They are the only industry awards both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals.

Final ballots, available for download at www.harveyawards.org, are due to the Harvey Awards by Friday, 7th August 2010 and full details for submission of completed ballots can be found on the final ballot. Voting is open to anyone professionally involved in a creative capacity within the comics field. Those without Internet access may request that paper ballots be sent to them via mail or fax by calling the Baltimore Comic-Con - (001) 410 526 7410 - or e-mailing baltimorecomicccon@yahoo.com.

This will be the fifth year for the Harvey Awards in Baltimore and the Master of Ceremonies this year for the second year in a row will be Scott Kurtz (www.pvponline.com).

This year's Baltimore Comic-Con will be held 28 - 29th August 2010. The ceremony and banquet for the 2009 Harvey Awards will be held Saturday night, 28th August.
