The nominating committee is composed mainly of bookstore staffers who are in charge of their respective stores' manga. This year's nominating committee consisted of 94 individuals, who selected from 238 titles. Any manga title that was released in 2019 and has eight volumes or less is eligible. The volume cap is intentionally added so that the prize winners would be relatively new works that have not already earned their popularity through sheer longevity.

The second round of voting will determine the winner of Manga Taisho 2020, which will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held sometime in mid to late March.

Previous winners include:

Ikoku Nikki, The Blue Period., and Do not say mystery were also nominated for the awards last year.
