The Victorian Steampunk Society has from its formation recognised excellence in the world of Steampunk and is now launching a series of awards voted for by UK Steampunks attending The Asylum each year.
These are awards for work first published/released between January 1 and December 31, 2011, and will be made for a tangible piece of work be it a book, artwork or piece of music etc, which means that my novel Anno Frankenstein is eligible.
But even if you're not attending The Asylum yourself this year, you can still suggest a category and nominate in it. The best suggestions will incorporate into the awards.
These forms will be used to draw up a shortlist of nominees, and of course being shortlisted is of course an accolade in itself. The voting form will be made available to all Asylum convention adult attendees and results will be announced at the Empire Ball.
Just so you know...
Happy International Steampunk Day!
