Time to Vote for the First Dragon Awards

In the spirit of the Dragon and with infinite admiration, Dragon Con has created The Dragon Award as a vessel to recognize excellence in Science Fiction and Fantasy. These awards will be by the fans, for the fans, and are a chance to reward those who have made real contributions to SF, books, games, comics, and shows.   Voting for the awards is ongoing, but ends September 1.

There is no qualification for voting – no convention fees or other memberships are needed. The only requirement is that you register, confirm your email address for voting purposes, and agree to the rules. This ensures that all votes count equally. The actual awards are scheduled to be presented at 1:00 PM on Sunday September 4, 2016.

George R.R. Martin Applauds Dragon Awards

George R.R. Martin wrote about the awards in a blog post:

I might also mention that there is a new award for SF and fantasy this year: the Dragon Awards, sponsored by Dragoncon, the big Atlanta media convention. Lots and lots of categories…So I applaud Dragoncon’s effort, and will be interested in how this all turns out.
