The Stumptown Comics Fest, the largest creator-focused comics convention in the Pacific Northwest, is now accepting submissions of comic work for consideration by our judges for the 2013 Stumptown Comic Arts Awards. Publishers and creators interested in submitting work should include one physical copy of each title to be considered, accompanied by an official Entry Submission form which can be downloaded from the link below:
Please include one form with each work being submitted.
Categories for this year's awards include Best Artist, Best Writer, Best Cartoonist, Best Letterer, Best Colorist, Best Publication Design, Best Small Press, Best Anthology, and Best New Talent.
In addition, the Stumptown Comics Fest is proud to announce a new category for 2013 - Best Webcomic!
Any work published after April 2012 will be eligible. Digital comics (meaning any comic published for online download or mobile reading devices) are also eligible for any category by following the instructions on the submission form. Those submitting their Webcomic and Digital comics work do not need to provide printed copies. Submitters may not submit more than five distinct works per category, but works may be submitted in any number of categories.
Entries must be postmarked no later than the submission deadline of March 15, 2013 to be considered, and should be mailed to this address:

As with last year, all work submitted will be subject to consideration by a jury of industry professionals. The jury will issue a final ballot in March 2013, which will be available online for voting by any and all professionals, fans, and readers of the comic arts. The votes will determine the final winners of each category, which will be tabulated and awarded at the Awards Ceremony to be held during the Stumptown Comics Fest on April 27 & 28 in Portland, Oregon.
