2019 Silmaril Awards coming on September 2nd

August 16, 2019 5

The Silmaril Awards will soon be back for their fourth year!

Come be a part of the most unique literary fantasy awards just about anywhere. These awards are for characters, not for authors or books, and they are (appropriately) presented by fictional characters, specifically, famous heroes from the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

This year’s awards will keep the same categories as last year, namely:

  • Most Epic Heroine
  • Least Competent Henchman
  • Most Magnificent Dragon
  • Silver Tongue
  • Most Faithful Friend
  • Most Nefarious Villain
  • Strangest Character
  • Most Epic Hero
  • Most Mischievous Imp
  • Wisest Counselor

There will be two new presenters, though one is a Silmaril alum. Welcome back Jennette, and welcome our newest presenter Christine!
