The awards are open to independent creators and publishers worldwide who produce comics using crowd-funding in English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish languages. We are now accepting entries for comics that have been crowd-funded or self-published between September 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015.
Enter by backing European Comics Journal’s Kickstarter and save! You may enter now and send PDFs of your comics later.
Early entry fee is £15 (then it’ll be £20) to enter the contest. Final entry deadline is October 9, 2015; results will be announced on European Comics Journal March issue. European Comics Journal will provided readers all they needed to know about the best indie comics to read. Many of the top creators have opted out of restrictive publisher’s contracts and have chosen to bring their work to market as independent publishers. There are thousands of comic projects launched on Kickstarter and Indiegogo each year: some are successful, and others fail to come to life. Regardless, the final results leave us with comics that have high quality stories, illustrations, marketing strategies, videos. The Indie Comics Award is designed to bring increased recognition to the deserving but often unsung comics published by independent creators and publishers. The European Comics Journal will bring them to the attention of its readers, retailers, and comics lovers around the world. All indie, small press, and self-publishers who produce comics in English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish languages are eligible to enter.
