Steampunk Spotlight: SPC Readers’ Choice Awards

The Steampunk Chronicle (SPC) is currently taking nominations for the best in Steampunk!

Go to their website to nominate through February 26. Voting starts on  March 5 and runs through April 3rd. Winners will be announced as part of STEAMFest in Atlanta, GA.

You will need to create an account and login to nominate because SPAM, unfortunately, is a reality. Have mercy…your Steampunk entertainers and The Steampunk Chronicle are worth the few extra moments to do so.

There are lots & lots of categories, so I won’t list them all here. But I will make a few suggestions that I think are worthy of your nomination…

Best Band: The Marquis of Vaudeville and Steam Powered Giraffe get my vote!

Best Solo Musician: Unwoman. Hands down.

O. M. Grey with Javert & Capt. Whittaker of ASI

Best Podcast: Mine! Caught in the Cogs, or, perhaps more relevant to Steampunk, Tee Morris & Pip Ballantine’s Tales From The Archives.

Best Blog: Mine!! Caught in the Cogs. Or, also consider Beyond Victoriana.

Best Website: Doctor Fantastique’s Show of Wonders, Steampunk Chronicle, or Airship Ambassador

Song of the Year: Brass Goggles” by Steam Powered Giraffe

Best Fiction: Avalon Revisited by O. M. Grey. -_Q or…The Zombies of Mesmer, also by O. M. Grey. Imagine that.

Best Short Story: So many to choose from! “Of Aether and Aeon” by O. M. Grey, “Dust on the Davenport” by O. M. Grey, “Dead Mule Crossing” by O. M. Grey, or “The Tragic Tale of Doctor Fausset” by O. M. Grey.

Worse use of Streampunk in Mainstream Media: say it with me…Justin Beiber’s Christmas Video.

Best Maker, Group: Airship Isabella

Jacob Marley

Best Dressed Male: Captain Cedric Whittaker of the Airship Isabella. Or, alternatively, Captain Lazuli Delacru of the Neo Dulcimer, especially as The Mad Hatter or Jacob Marley.

Best Dressed Female: Me! 🙂

Best Hats: Gypsy Lady Hats

Best Convention (or one of the variations of that category) : Clockwork Con, Austin, TX

Best Multicultural Steampunk: Ay-Leen the Peacemaker or Jaymee Goh

Steampunk Person to Watch for 2012: Me! With 2 new titles, a third on the way, and nearly an entire issue of GearHearts all to myself, including the magazine cover, pinup pictures inside, interview, & short story. Look for issue #3 in May!

These are just some suggestions, modest suggestions, of course. 🙂

Whomever you nominate (me! me! me!), please participate & nominate your favorites.

So go! Right now! Nominate!!!

Me, especially. 🙂
