Now doesn’t that seem an unlikely question to see here? And yet with the winners of the 2020 Dragon Awards’ seven novel categories including John Scalzi, Erin Morgenstern, and T. Kingfisher, and the award administrators canvassing voters through the Atlanta-local library systems, the chances of prying Puppy paws loose get better every year. (Though they’re trying to hold on — Declan Finn challenged the Puppies to push back against the “Leftist dirtbags” mainstreaming the award in this blog post.)
The nomination deadline: July 19, 2021. Use this link to make Dragon Awards Nominations.
ELIGIBILITY. Nominees should be first released between 7/1/2020 and 6/30/2021. The eligibility period means, among other things, that you can’t just plug in Hugo finalists, because two of them came out before July 1 (the Jemisin and Wells books; Wells was one of last year’s finalists).
Red Panda Fraction is crowdsourcing a helpful tool to deal with this — Dragon Awards 2021 Eligible Works at Google Sheets.
FINAL BALLOT. The initial batch of final ballots will be released in August 2021.
