The 2017 Dragon Awards Winners have been Announced

Sep 3, 2017


Having spent the entire weekend here in Atlanta, my time at Dragon Con has been a truly unique and rewarding experience. Between the panels featuring some of my favorite actors from my favorite shows, to getting to meet and engage with people I have been a fan of for years, Dragon Con and the culture around it has been one of the highlights of this year for me.

One of the newest additions to the Dragon Con experience is the Dragon Con Awards. Starting in 2016 in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Con, the Dragon Awards celebrates everything that is awesome in pop culture. With categories that span the geek cultural landscape from books, comics, TV, film and games, the Dragon Awards covers 15 categories with 88 properties within them. More than 8,000 fans cast their votes for their favorites in multiple categories. Some of the winners from this year include:
