FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2016 PULP ARK NEW PULP AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED! AWARDS TO BE PRESENTED IN LITTLE ROCK, AR, JUNE 11!

Pulp Ark, a Convention within a Convention (River City Comic Expo), announces today the winners of the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards. These awards honor the best writers, artists, and works in New Pulp today with a vote that is open to public nomination, then a public vote on the nominees in eight categories.

"The process," says Tommy Hancock, Coordinator of Pulp Ark and the Awards, "took a tad longer this year. We saw a massive increase in participation over last year, which is fantastic, but also meant more vetting of the ballots had to be done and more care had to be taken to insure all ballots were valid and results accurate. The winners represent at least 10 publishing houses represented by the various creators carrying home Pulp Ark Awards this year. Congratulations to all winners and each nominee for the 2016 Pulp Ark New Pulp Awards!"
