Doug Wright Awards Kickstarter

From Sequential.

The Doug Wright Awards have started a campaign to crowdsource specific costs for their 2014 event, taking place during TCAF on May 10 at the Ballroom of the Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel. This is the 10th anniversary of the awards, and as a participant in the organization of the event in years past, I can attest that the costs of the event and the production of the actual awards puts quite a strain on the non-profit organization and its tiny group of volunteers. 

To offset the costs this year, the Wrights have launched a Kickstarter campaign. They are asking for exactly $6135.00 to cover the cost of the event, including production of the awards, the famous trophies, and a small 10th anniversary book, as well as travel costs for guests, including bringing Canadian Golden Age artist Jack Tremblay from Montreal.
