The Comics Reporter reports the news that the Eisner awards are accepting submissions for a possible "Best Digital Comic" category.
The category would encompass a subset of webcomics but potentially include comics "distributed via other digital media".
Any professionally produced long-form comics work posted online or distributed via other digital media is eligible. The majority of the work must have been published in 2004. 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.
