The nominees for the 2022 Harvey Awards have been announced by ReedPop (Popverse's parent company) ahead of the awards ceremony taking place this October at New York Comic Con.

The Harvey Awards are an annual award intended to recognize the best in comics and adaptations of comics from around the globe. This year's nominees were chosen by a curated committee of comic creators, publishing staff, retailers, educators, and librarians. Now that the nominees have been finalized, creators and industry professionals attending New York Comic Con will be voting on the winners. Creators and professionals who aren't attending NYCC (those who are will automatically be signed up to vote) are encouraged to apply on the Harvey Awards 'Apply to Vote' page. Voting ends on September 2.

This year's Harvey Awards Hall of Fame class will be announced closer to the event.

“We are honored to once again shine a light on the best and brightest work within the comics industry through the prestigious Harvey Awards, says ReedPop Global President Lance Fensterman in a statement. "This year’s list of nominees are bringing fresh, original storytelling and unique voices to the industry and we are looking forward to celebrating their work at this year’s New York Comic Con."
