Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards 2004San Diego, California, USAJuly 23, 2004Deadline: March 12, 1004
The annual Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards are given to the finest publications and creators in the comic book industry. Publishers can submit any comic, graphic novel or comics-related periodical or book that was shipped to retailers between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2003. The submitted items will be considered by a blue-ribbon panel of judges, who will select the final items to appear on the Eisner Awards ballot. Creators can submit materials for consideration if: (a) their publisher is no longer in business; (b) their publisher is unlikely to have participated in the nomination process; or (c) they have severed connections with the publisher or have similar reasons for believing that their publisher is unlikely to consider nominating them or their work. All submissions should be sent to Jackie Estrada, Eisner Awards Administrator, 4657 Cajon Way, San Diego, California 92115. The nominees will be announced in April, and ballots will go out in May to some 5,000 creators, editors, publishers, distributors, and retailers. The results will be announced by celebrity presenters at the gala awards ceremony held during the Comic-Con International.
