To nominate your comic, please go to our Nominations Page, fill in the form, and send a copy of your book to

Submissions for the Debut Award can be submitted at the Fest, if they aren't available before then.
A small selection of Stumptown Organizers will cull through the works submitted and create a ballot of nominations. These ballots will be handed out to attendees at the Comics Fest on Saturday, September 29th, and voting will close at 5:00pm. The votes will be counted and the award will be presented at the official After-Party/Awards Ceremony on Saturday night at Cosmic Monkey Comics on Sandy Blvd.
