"They've wrestled with reality for 11 years and seem to have finally won out over it.”
The Harvey Awards may be voted on exclusively by comic book creators who write, draw, ink, color, letter, design, edit, or are otherwise professionally involved in the creative aspect of comics, online or in print; but for years I've regularly not cared much for the majority of those singled out by the nominees. It is said that the Harvey Awards are the only industry awards both nominated and selected by the full body of comic book professionals. Thus voting is open to anyone professionally involved in a creative capacity within the industry.
This year's Baltimore Comic-Con will be held September 2-4, 2016, with the awards banquet being held on Saturday night. This will be the eleventh year that the Baltimore Con has hosted the Harvey Awards in Maryland.

As far as I can tell, comic book awards have grown increasingly allergic to mainstream work, even when it deserves attention. They exist to help point out what's happening besides what you already know about. It's like the Oscars in that respect.
