In addition, the Stumptown Comics Fest is proud to announce a new category for 2014, Best Publication for Young Readers.
Any work published after April 2013 and before April 30, 2014 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 need to arrive no later than the submission deadline of August 7 to be considered, and should be mailed to this address:
Bridge City Comics
3725 N. Mississippi Ave.
Portland, OR 97227
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 August, 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 Rose City Comic Con's kick-off party, on September 19, 2014 at the Portland Things From Another World.
