Loose Parts Wins
NCS Reubens Award
for 2nd Year in a row!
Loose Parts and Dave Blazek were just awarded this year's Silver Reuben Award for Newspaper Panels at the National Cartoonists Society virtual award show held September 12th.
The National Cartoonists Society is the world's oldest and largest association of cartooning professionals. The award is voted on by hundreds of the best cartoonists, illustrators, animators and industry pros working today.
Loose Parts also won the award in the same category last year.
To see the entire Reuben Award Day, go to NCSFest.com. If you'd like to see Dave's acceptance speech, look right on this page.
"I'm not sure words, or pictures, can adequately express how simultaneously gratifying and humbling this award is," said Blazek. "As someone who only began cartooning in middle age, I'm in awe by the giants and other pros who wander around the NCS. To be recognized by them leaves me flabbergasted. Really, I had my doctor check. My flabbergast levels are off the charts."

Dave & Loose Parts Nominated For Reuben Award For 3rd Year In a Row!
It's Hat Trick time at Loose Parts World HQ, where Loose Parts has again, for the third year in a row, been nominated as a finalist for Best Newspaper Panel Cartoon in the 2021 NCS Reuben Awards. Loose Parts won in 2019 and again in 2020. We'll find out this fall if Loose Parts can make it three in a row. Surely, Dave will do something stupid before then, though. So don't get your hopes up.
