Harvey Award Accepting Nominations and New Category

The Harvey Awards, which have moved to Baltimore Comic-con for this years award ceremony, is now accepting nominations via a ballot that can be downloaded from their webpage. This year there is a new category, “Best Online Comics Work”.

For the first time in several years, you’ll note a new category on this year’s ballot. In following with the results of a recent Referendum which appeared on an earlier Harvey ballot, you’ll see the first-time inclusion of Best Online Comics Work. During the past year, we’ve had several discussions with professionals regarding the growing importance and diversity of online work. Any comments you’d like to make concerning any future revision/expansion to this category would be appreciated.

To be eligible to send in a ballot you apparently need to be a “comic professional”, where this puts webcomic creators is anyones guess.
