Arisia '10

Countdown to the Con:

Carl Brandon Society Award Ceremony

This year, the two awards given by the Carl Brandon Society will be awarded at Arisia.  Since its inception in 1999, the Carl Brandon Society has been working to raise  awareness of  racial and ethnic diversity in the production of and audience for speculative fiction.

The Carl Brandon Parallax Award is given to works of speculative fiction created by a person of color. Nominees must provide a brief statement self-identifying as a person of color; creators unwilling to do so will not be considered for this award. This Award includes a $1000 cash prize.

The Carl Brandon Kindred Award is given to any work of speculative fiction dealing with issues of race and ethnicity; nominees may be of any racial or ethnic group. This Award includes a $1000 cash prize.

We look forward to hosting the Carl Brandon Society at Arisia this year.
