PHILIP K. DICK AWARD

PHILIP K. DICK AWARD
   Founded in 1983 by admirers of Philip K. DICK, who died in 1982. Because much of Dick's classic sf was published with no fanfare and initially without a hardcover edition, it seemed appropriate to give the award to a distinguished work of sf or fantasy of the previous year first published in paperback. The award was initially suggested by Thomas M. DISCH, who was for several years its administrator; he was succeeded by an administrative team of Algis BUDRYS and David G. HARTWELL. The winners are chosen by a jury (with variously 3, 4 and 5 members) of writers and critics, most of whom choose their own successors for the following year; usually one judge is the previous year's winner. The PKDA is announced at NorWesCon, a CONVENTION held in the state of Washington in March eachyear. In good years, when the committee has collected enough cash, the winner receives $1000 and the second-place winner $500. Plaques are provided by the Philip K. Dick estate.
