Today the Dragon Awards officially declared nominations are being taken for the 2018 awards. The site had already been updated and opened to participants some days ago.
They also announced the creation of a new category, and the retirement of another.
We are excited to announce, Best Media Tie-In Novel, as a new category for the 2018 Dragon Awards!
Qualifications for this new category include: that it is a novel, 70,000 words in length, containing a single story, (no anthologies) based on a media property: comic book, game, graphic novel, literary work, movie or television series.
The category of Best Apocalyptic Novel has been retired. In the award’s first two years it was won by Nick Cole for Ctrl Alt Revolt! (2016) and Cory Doctorow for Walkaway (2017).
