2024 FRANK R. PAUL AWARDS (for 2023 calendar year)

BEST BOOK COVER NOMINEES

HONORABLE MENTIONS

NOTE: The rules state that no artist can have more than 2 nominations; 3 Kurt Miller pieces scored highly enough to be nominated, so the lowest scoring was moved to the Honorable Mention listing.

BEST MAGAZINE COVER NOMINEES

HONORABLE MENTIONS

NOTE: AI-generated images and art from stock image companies (or derivatives thereof) are ineligible; three covers (Asimov’s, Jan-Feb, 2023; Asimov’s, May-June 2023; and Galaxy’s Edge, May 2023) scored highly enough to be nominated but were disqualified on these grounds.

See the award website for more information and instructions on how to submit work for consideration for next year’s awards (for the 2024 calendar year).
