For Your Consideration

As just about everyone must be aware, the 2014 Awards Season is upon us.

Every year, hundreds, if not thousands of books, television shows, films and more are considered for come of genre’s most prestigious awards.

And every year, many more thousands of eligible works go unnoticed simply because they did not receive wide enough recognition during the nominating period.

Numerous guiding lights of our industry have sought to rectify this situation by opening up their sites for the promotion of eligible works and promoting the awards far and wide.

For Your Consideration is Amazing Stories’ own modest attempt at giving creators just one more venue for sharing their works.

Before we introduce you to the possible nominees – here are some places you can find additional information about the various awards offered within the genre community:

SF Awards Watch (has links to most awards, nominating process, eligibility requirements, etc

Locus (SF Awards Database – includes links to governing bodies and history of awards)

The Hugo Awards (one of the primary, non-juried awards currently conducting nomination)
