Since Steamcon II, the Airship Awards has been an event to recognize the best and most outstanding in the Steampunk subculture. In the inaugural awards banquet, some of the most influential Steampunks were recognized for their contributions to the community, including Jake Von Slatt, the creators of Girl Genius, Alan Moore, Captain Robert and Abney Park as a whole.
Nominations are now open for this year’s Airship Awards are now open for a variety of categories.
My dear friend Jordan Bodewell of Sepiachord has announced his desire to be nominated for the Aural Award which encompasses, “Any aural piece of work, including but not limited to: Bands, songs, musicians, music videos, etc.”
I would like to enthusiastically endorse his quest for this nomination. Jordan and Sepiachord does much for the Steampunk music genre and the many talented and independent artists within it. If you happen to value the wonderful work that Sepiachord does for Steampunk music, please consider going over to the Airship Awards nominations section and writing in Sepiachord into the Aural category.
And while you are there, make sure to make worthy picks for all the other sections. Steampunk has so many wonderful facets, so it’s hard to pick just one representative for each category, but follow your heart and pick the best by your judgement!
