Nomination and Voting Details

The comic characters whose figurines to be showcased in the Avenue are all household names. 

Being classics, they are well received and recognized by the public and industry alike. 

In early December 2011, the organizer sought nominations for locally-created comic characters and local comic artists from the public and industry organizations,

including the Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Association, Hong Kong Comics & Animation Federation, the Hong Kong Arts Centre,

the Hong Kong Game Industry Association, and Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Industry Support Centre.

As a result, 145 comic characters and 65 comic artists were nominated by the public, while the industry organizations nominated 36 comic characters and 26 comic artists.

 

The organizer then shortlisted the 80 comic characters and 71 artists which received most nominations for

public voting and or determination by a Professional Panel for Selection. 

The Panel is formed by industry practitioners who made their choices based on the said five key criteria to finalize the list of 24 comic characters

which have their painted figurines and 10 comic artists who are featured with their bronze handprints in the Avenue starting from August 2012.
