Expozine Alternative Press Awards Gala!

Announcing the inaugural Expozine Alternative Press Awards Gala!

Join us on March 22, 2006 at the Mainline Theatre, 3997 St Laurent, at 9pm to hear the announcement of the winners! The event will feature Montreal's favourite air band Never Surrender, master of ceremonies Jean Giscagne plus some surprises! Admission is free.

About the awards and nominees:

After four years of promoting Montreal's small press community, Expozine decided to recognize the best it has to offer with the first annual Expozine Alternative Press Awards! To reflect the wide diversity of printed matter represented last November at Expozine, Montreal's only annual small press, comic and zine fair, six prizes will be awarded (three in English and three in French), for the following categories:

Best book
Best comic
Best zine

Each of the more than 200 Expozine participants were asked to submit their best creation for consideration for the prizes. An extensive shortlist was selected and made public by the Expozine organizing committee. Following are the English finalists:
