The Carl Brandon Society is reinstituting two literary awards. The Parallax Award is given “to works of speculative fiction created by a self-identified person of color.” The Kindred Award goes “to any work of speculative fiction dealing with issues of race and ethnicity; nominees may be of any racial or ethnic group.” The awards were first given in 2006 and continued through 2011. Each comes with an award plaque and a check for $1,000. Nominations for works published in 2019 are open now through April 15, 2020.
For more information, and to nominate, see the Carl Brandon Society website.
While you are here, please take a moment to support Locus with a one-time or recurring donation. We rely on reader donations to keep the magazine and site going, and would like to keep the site paywall free, but WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT to continue quality coverage of the science fiction and fantasy field.
