To celebrate their 30th Anniversary, Dragon Con has just announced the introduction of the Dragon Awards, a fan-focused process that will recognize the best science fiction in fifteen categories.

“We wanted to offer fans an opportunity to vote for their favorite book, comic, movie, television show or game, which just about covers all the different ways that we enjoy science fiction and fantasy today,” said Pat Henry, president of Dragon Con, Inc.  “In the last 30 years, the way we enjoy science fiction and fantasy has changed so much, but the demand for quality has never diminished.  These awards are our way of recognizing the best writers, artists, directors and game designers who breathe life into the things we love.”

The Dragon Awards is already being talked about as a much-needed successor to the erstwhile industry pinnacle Hugo Awards, which have fallen into politicized controversy and disarray over the past few years.
