One of the awesome things about the crowdfunding business model is that it breaks the stranglehold of mainstream publishing. This encourages people to publish material on topics they love for niche markets that mainstream editors would never accept. Publishing is a popular category on the crowdfunding hubs like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo. What crowdfunded projects did you enjoy last year with speculative themes? Who did the most original portrayals of aliens? Which artists were doing cover illustrations? Which writers took you to other worlds? Who hosted prompt calls where you could ask for science fiction? Nominate them in the relevant category. Did you know folks who helped support those projects with donations? Nominate them as patrons!

Please drop by to nominate your favorite crowdfunded projects from 2013. Post about the award in any relevant venue to help alert more people.
