The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) have created official medallions that can be displayed on the covers of Norton and Nebula Award-winning publications. The design, revealed during the Nebula Awards banquet on June 6, 2015 and announced in an official release the following day, celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SFWA.
The medallions were created by the SFWA in partnership with editor Joe Monti and designer Michael McCartney. Monti explained, “One of the greatest book selling tools we have is award recognition. Or to put it another way: You put a shiny gold or silver medal on a book cover and it sells books!”
