The Dragon Con Independent Short Film Festival Awards Ceremony took place on Monday, September 4th. Clips were shown from each of three finalists in the categories of Animated Comedy, Animated Fantasy, Animated Fantasy & Science Fiction, Comedy, Fan Film, Fantasy, Horror, Horror Comedy, Science Fiction, and Thriller. The finalists, as well as the winners, are listed below. Best Animated Short and Best Short Film were chosen from the 1st place winners in the genre shorts categories. An Honorable Mention was given to a film that, due to particularly intense competition, did not place first in its category.
