Last Call for Munsey Nominations

Apr 25, 2018 by

Every year, PulpFest recognizes the efforts of those who work to keep the pulps alive for this and future generations through its Munsey Award. Named after Frank A. Munsey, the man who published the first pulp magazine, this annual award recognizes an individual or institution that has bettered the pulp community, be it through disseminating knowledge about the pulps or through publishing or other efforts to preserve and to foster interest in the pulp magazines we all love and enjoy.

Nominations for the 2018 Munsey are now being accepted. All members of the pulp community, whether they plan to attend PulpFest 2018 or not are welcome to nominate a deserving person for this year’s award. If you’d like to make a nomination for this prestigious award, please send a short explanation concerning your reasons for the nomination to PulpFest marketing and programming director Mike Chomko at mike@pulpfest.com. You can also reach Mike at 2217 W. Fairview Street, Allentown, PA 18104-6542.

All members of the pulp community, excepting past winners of the MunseyHevelin, or Lamont Awards (which had been awarded by Pulpcon, the predecessor of PulpFest), are eligible.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, April 30, 2018. The recipient of the Munsey Award will be selected through a vote cast by all the living Lamont, Munsey, and Rusty Award winners. The award will be presented on Saturday, July 28, during the convention’s evening programming at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pittsburgh – Cranberry, the host hotel for PulpFest 2018.

Our 2017 Munsey Award winner was Phil Stephensen-Payne. You can read about Phil by clicking here.

(The Munsey Award was created in 2009 by artist David Saunders, the son of legendary illustrator Norman Saunders. Dan Zimmer of The Illustrated Press and publisher of ILLUSTRATION MAGAZINE has produced a limited edition of thirty-six numbered and signed prints. The PulpFest Committee is indebted to both David and Dan for their generous support of our convention.)
