Nominees for the British Comic Awards must be the work of a wholly British* creative team, and the rights to such work should belong either to creators or a UK publisher. If you aren’t entirely sure if something qualifies, suggest it to us anyway and the committee will debate it.
The Awards year runs from 1st September 2012 to 31st August 2013. However, the Young People’s Comic Award has a slightly different time frame due to term times, which is 1st August 2012 to 31st July 2013. More info on each award category can be found on the Awards page.
* Where we refer to British we’re referring to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Phonogram, by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie (published by Image Comics (USA), but the creators/rights-holders are based in the UK).
WOULD NOT QUALIFY:
All Star Superman, by Grant Morrision and Frank Quitely (both creators from the UK, but published by DC Comics (USA) who own the rights to the series).
The Girl and The Gorilla, by Madéleine Flores (though published by Blank Slate Books (UK), the creator is a German citizen).
