Guess it depends what you consider "major"   eQSLs are good for  all CQ 
awards (and lots of folks think WAZ/5BWAZ is on the majorish side).   I 
personally like the WPX award.  Plus you can upload eQSLs to the DARC  Contest Log 
and use them for DARC awards.  I have gotten a good number of  DARC awards 
this way.
Soon LoTW will be good for CQ awards, starting with WPX.  Eventually I  
hope LoTW will support any award.  That could leave eQSL out in the  cold.
I like eQSL because I can actually get a QSL to look at, although too many  
use the standard eQSL images.  Surprisingly, eQSL does not provide a  
serious QSL design program, such as the Global QSL one.  This is one of the  
mysteries of the universe I can't explain.

I don't  think that eQSL counts for any major awards, does it?

LOTW is  definately the way to go.  73
