Are you eligible: Parsec Award eligibility list

For those of us, social media pros and fans alike, that want to make an informed decision when nominating our favorite stories for a parsec, I decided to try to put together a list of possible nominees. If you are a podcast author, or just a fan of a particular author that isn’t listed, I would love to add you to the list. This is a work in progress. Please send the necessary information to submissions at and I’ll update the list as soon as possible.

The submissions policy for the Parsecs can be found here. I am not recommending that you nominate anyone, I am just wanting to try to help everyone know who is eligible.

Following are a list of the categories with eligible podcast in each category. If you’re curious on what makes a podcast eligible in that division, you can find that information here.

I would also like to remind everyone of the following statement taken directly from the Parsec Awards website: Each podcast only needs to submitted once. The Parsec Awards are not a popularity contest and duplicate submissions will be combined with any existing submission for a podcast. If you wish to second a nomination for a podcast please do so by adding a comment to the submission page.

One final disclaimer: I am posting what I am told is eligible and make no claims of eligibility myself. Please be sure you check for yourself where your favorite podcast belongs.

Good luck to all podcasters. I wish you could all win.
