Leeds West Academy

British Comic Book Awards

On Friday 13th November a group of Leeds West Academy students attended the prestigious awards ceremony for the British Comic Book Awards, taking part in the Young People's Category. The national event which celebrates and showcases new graphic novels was hosted at Leeds Art Gallery. 

The ambassadors from the school are enthusiastic members of Mrs Redman's Comics EEP and have been reading all of the short-listed titles, subsequently casting votes for their favourite. At the ceremony students were able to meet the authors and learn about the creative processes which bring the graphic novels to life, as well as appraise and review new publications.

Mrs. Black, School Librarian, added: “It was an excellent experience for all of the students as well as the staff. We scrutinised an incredible amount of new writing and inspiring artwork, which will continue to fuel the imaginations of our readers.”
