This year’s Giants are Fiona Smyth, an artist and teacher known for her groundbreaking comics tackling female sexuality, and Alootook Ipellie (1951–2007) a multi-faceted artist, writer, activist, and cartoonist recognized for his satirical comics about Inuit life in Canada.
The 15th annual Doug Wright Awards will be hosted by Steve Manale.
