PRESS RELEASE:

2014 NEW PULP AWARDS VOTING NOW OPEN!

Tommy Hancock, Coordinator of the New Pulp Awards (formerly the Pulp Ark Awards) which recognize the best in New Pulp each year, announced today that the final ballot of the 2014 New Pulp Awards has been compiled and released and voting has opened.  Voting will continue through 3 PM CST March 12, 2014.  The Awards will be physically presented at MidSouthCon in Memphis, Tennessee on March 23, 2014 at 2:30 PM.

“This,” Hancock states, “has been a stellar year for nominations.  That being said, some may not see the nominations they made on the final ballot. This could be for more than one reason, the most likely being that two or more nominations were made in a category when only one, per the rules, should have been made OR because a work or creator nominated did not qualify for the award.  This happened most frequently with the New Writer category where several writers were nominated who had been published previously prior to 2013 in a book/publication that was considered to be New Pulp.  This happens frequently because readers find someone they like and think the book they’ve read is the first one the author did.  It explains why even Sax Rohmer received a nomination for New Writer of the Year, one he unfortunately does not qualify for.”

This is the first year of not only the new name for the Awards, but also that voting is open fully to the public.  In the past, only those who nominated a work or person for an award were allowed to vote.  “This is a big deal,” says Hancock. “This means the New Pulp Awards may actually be the only Pulp Awards truly representative of the fanbase. Having said that, though, we are highly aware that anyone nominated or anyone supporting a nominee could rally up a whole slew of friends, family, and strangers and cast votes for them or their favorite. What we are encouraging is for no one to do that, but to encourage those who have read and/or reviewed the work to vote based on their interest in the work, not because the writer is their third cousin removed.  We are having to work on a sort of honor system here and hope our voters will appreciate and respect that.”

The Ballot is available at www.newpulpawards2014.blogspot.com and at www.facebook.com/NewPulpAwards2014.  Voting and results and other news related to the Awards will be posted and can be followed at these pages.
