The Kitschies have announced the opening of submissions for books published in the UK in 2015, and new people have also been added to the prestigious panel of judges.

Publishers from the full range of the industry have until midnight November 1st, 2015 to submit their works. Advanced copies are acceptable, especially for those works coming out late in the year.  Books have to have been first published in the United Kingdom between January 1st and December 31st, 2015.

Previous winners including Lauren Beukes, China Miéville, Karen Lord, Ruth Ozeki, Kameron Hurley and Patrick Ness. The judges for the Red and Golden Tentacles, for novels and debut novels, are Sarah Lotz, James Smythe, Nikesh Shukla, Nazia Khatun, and Glen Mehn.

It is their task to determine 2015’s most progressive, intelligent and entertaining books that contain elements of the speculative and fantastic. Winners receive prize money as well as one of the prize’s iconic hand-crafted Tentacle trophies.

They are five trophies in total. The Red Tentacle is for novels, the Golden Tentacle is for debut authors, the Inky Tentacle is for cover art, and the Invisible Tentacle is for natively digital works. The Black Tentacle is a special achievement award.

More information on the awards and The Kitschies themselves can be found here.
