Kitschie Awards Open

The Kitschie Awards are open to submissions until 11:59 p.m. November 1, 2017 GMT. Books published in the UK in 2017 are eligible.

The Kitschies “took 2016 off due to a change of sponsors.” Kitschie Awards go to “the year’s most progressive, intelligent, and entertaining works that contain elements of the speculative or fantastic.” Award recipients receive tentacle trophies and cash prizes totaling £2,500. Judges for the Red and Golden Tentacle (Novel and Debut Novel respectively) are Jon Courtenay Grimwood, Leila Abu el Hamwa, Joshua Idehen, Ewa Scibor-Rylska, and Alasdair Stuart.

To submit, and for more details about the Kitschies, go to their official website.
