Yes they are. The Grammy rules state " Recordings must be in general
distribution in the United States, i.e. sales by label to a branch or
recognized independent distributor, via the Internet, or mail order/retail
sales for a nationally marketed product."
This also means that you cant sell it from your website only but must sell
it through a third party retailer like Amazon for physical product or
iTunes for digital only distribution.
The first time I remember this happening is when the Washington Chorus self
produced a recording or Britten War Requiem and got it approved for
submission by selling it through Amazon. It ended up winning.
All the best,
