Dragon Con’s Dragon Awards, a fan’s choice awards program to recognize the very best in science fiction and fantasy literature, comics, gaming, and filmed entertainment, has published its 2019 ballot.
The Dragon Awards are decidedly a “fans’ choice” award. All fans – not just Dragon Con members or attendees – are invited to select the Dragon Award winners by voting – for free – on the fourth annual Dragon Awards ballot. The full ballot can be viewed here. See The Ballot Here.
In 2018, more than 10,000 fans cast ballots for Dragon Award winners, selected from 94 properties in 15 categories covering the full range of fiction, comics, television, movies, video gaming, and tabletop gaming.
“The Dragon Awards celebrate the works most loved by the people who not only read, watch, and play, but also love, science fiction, and fantasy, “ said convention co-chair David Cody. “When a work is recognized with a Dragon Award, it means fans consider it an iconic contribution to their imaginative culture.”
All voting will be done electronically and only via a ballot emailed to each confirmed voter. To vote, fans must first register on the Dragon Awards website: Register Here. Ballots are then emailed in batches every few days through August.
Fans have until Friday, August 30th at 11:59 p.m., Eastern, to register. Voting ends 24-hours later on Saturday, August 31st at 11:59 p.m., Eastern.
Winners will be announced on Sept. 1st at Dragon Con, which will be held August 29 to September 2, 2019, in Atlanta.
The Dragon Awards were introduced in 2016 as part of the 30th Anniversary of Dragon Con, Atlanta’s internationally known pop culture, fantasy, sci-fi, and gaming convention.
To accommodate as many creative genres as possible, awards will be given in each of 15 categories covering the full range of fiction, comics, television, movies, video gaming, and tabletop gaming.
The ballot was selected in an open nomination process. Using the dedicated Dragon Awards website, fans were invited to nominate one (and only one) of their favorite properties in any or all the award categories. Nominations ran from early April until July 19. The best and most popular of the nominated properties were elevated to the ballot.
