 ATLANTA – September 2, 2018 – Dragon Con, the internationally known pop culture, sci fi, fantasy, and gaming convention, announced the winners of its 3rd annual Dragon Awards, a fan’s choice awards program to recognize the best in books, comics, games, and filmed entertainment.

More than 11,000 fans cast ballots for Dragon Award winners among 94 properties in 15 categories covering the full range of fiction, comics, television, movies, video gaming, and tabletop gaming.  Winners were announced on Sept. 2 at the 32nd annual Dragon Con in downtown Atlanta.

All fans – not just Dragon Con members or attendees – are invited to select the Dragon Award winners by voting on the annual Dragon Awards ballot.

Final voting was held via the dedicated Dragon Awards website, and the voting period ran from August 7 to August 31. The ballot was selected in an open nomination process in which fans nominated their favorite properties. The nomination period ran from early April until July 31.
