The Eisner Awards announced a call for nominations, including a Best Webcomic category. The definition of the category seems to be slightly different from last year’s Best Digital Comic category, which included comics distributed by any digital media.
Entries are also being accepted for the new category of best webcomic. This category is open to any professionally produced long-form original comics work posted online in 2005. Audio elements and animation can be part of the work but must be minimal. Web comics 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
