According to wikipedia the red panda is also known as the red bear-cat and also the red cat-bear. Meanwhile, the enigmatic Red Panda Faction has developed a Google Docs spreadsheet for works with Dragon Awards eligibility. Part bear, part cat, part panda-racoon hybrid, who better to unravel the taxonomic intricacies of Dragon Award categories!
It’s here http://bit.ly/DragonCon2018Eligible
Modelled on the Hugo sheet set up by Lady Business, the sheet has multiple tabs for each Dragon Award category as well as publications date so you can check eligibility.
The sheet is open to public contributions and should be a useful guide for anybody who wants to check if a work they want to nominate was eligible.
Anybody can nominate in the Dragon Awards: http://application.dragoncon.org/dc_fan_awards_nominations.php
The deadline for nominations is July 20, so now would be a good time to nominate something if you feel like it.
