The British Comic Awards team recently opened a Call for Entries – and has announced their partnership with Page 45, the award-winning and highly regarded Nottingham comic shop.

“We’re thrilled to be working with them and look forward to the opportunities ahead,” said a team spokesperson.

This is the fourth year of the British Comic Awards and  comic readers are being asked to tell the team about the best comic or graphic novel you’ve read in the last 10 months. Have you read a great comic for kids? Let them know. Have an idea for who should be in the BCA Hall of Fame? Tell them.

Similarly, creators are being encouraged to not be shy : submit your own work for consideration or put yourself forward for the Emerging Talent category.

With the BCA’s new form you can easily submit as many entries as you like, duplicate entries for multiple categories and even edit your entries all the way up until the deadline of 31st August 2015.

Each year, a panel of Judges generously give their time to read all the shortlisted titles and select a winner for the Best Comic, Best Book and Emerging Talent categories.

The Judges – who will be announced in August – will be selected by the BCA Committee and chosen for their interest or involvement in comics. They are also chosen for their ability to view the medium critically as works of art and entertainment from their point of view as successful professionals in their respective creative fields.

• Visit the BCA’s swish new Entry Form page to submit your favourite British comic published since 1st September 2014
