2011 Eisner Nominations are open!
The Eisner Awards — which includes a webcomic/digital comic award that was somehow made legit this year with Sin Titulo‘s win — are open for nominations! And now that Zuda’s gone and kicked the bucket, I’m guessing that means that a new nomination spot has opened up! Jackie Estrada has helpfully included a postscript detailing what, exactly, is a digital comic by Eisner standards:
The best digital comic category is open to any new, professionally produced long-form original comics work posted online in 2010. Webcomics must have a unique domain name or be part of a larger comics community to be considered. The work must be online-exclusive for a significant period prior to being collected in print form. The URL and any necessary access information should be emailed to email@example.com.
So who will the honored nominees be this year? Will it be a short story? A long-running print comic that’s made the leap to digital? As always, the decision is up … to YOU! (Or a coordinated marketing campaign by highly organized parties. It’s all good.)
