The buzzAwards honor comics who have exhibited exceptional quality in a number of categories. In an attempt to expose those “diamonds in the rough,” buzzAwards strives to honors smaller comics (10,000 average uniques/day or fewer). The nominees will be picked by committee–not voted on by the general public (buzzAwards is accepting applications for judges on the committee. There is an application form on the site). This means that a comic with very little exposure and fan base could finally get the attention it deserves.
Submissions for nominations may be made until June 15th, and nominees selected by the committee will be announced July 5th.
