Rewarding Québec Comic Books Since 1999
Launched by Promo 9e Art in 1999, the Bédélys Awards are a set of juried prizes for the best French-language comic books published during the preceding year in Québec, as well as an award for the worldwide best French-language comic book.
Starting in 2020, the Bédélys Independent Award will now be open to self-published, English-language comic books from Québec.
The Submissions for the Bédélys Independent 2020 Are Open!
The Bédélys Independent Award is a pair of prizes for the best self-published comics created in Quebec, with separate awards for comics published in French and in English.
Each award is accompanied by a grant of $1000 and they will share an exhibitor table at next MCAF, furnished by the Montreal Comic Arts Festival.
Submit two copies of your book and include a return address. It must have been self-published in Québec in 2020.

The submission deadline is January 8, 2021.
