There’ll be more on this topic coming soon, along with a dedicated subforum for it, but for now I just want to announce that we will be holding the 2013 and 2014 awards (for works published in 2012 and 2013, respectively) before the end of this year, in order to get caught up and back on track again.
I also want to publicly express my thanks to Ryffnah, who has agreed to take over running the awards during my term. She’s been part of the Cóyotl process from the earliest days of the awards, and with her hard work and your participation, I hope to see the awards not only revive but flourish in the coming years.
For the 2013 awards, I believe we already have the nominations in place and just need to tally those and begin the voting. Right now, in hopes of possibly being able to have an award ceremony at Rainfurrest as we did before, we’re going to be operating on a somewhat condensed timetable, so the plan at the moment is to do the 2013 voting and 2014 nominations in the same time period (probably July) and then do the 2014 voting somewhere around August. We’ll have discussion threads available before then, of course, for recommendations and announcements of eligible works.
As always, keep an eye here on the forums for the latest updates!
