About the EPPIE Awards
The EPPIE Awards have been given annually since the first EPIC conference to recognize outstanding achievement in e-publishing.
The categories are judged by members of EPIC, all published authors. After the first round of judging, the works of the finalists are sent to another panel of judges, and winners in all eighteen categories are selected. The winners are announced at the EPIC conference's gala award ceremony at the annual EPICon Convention.
Finalists will be informed by email before the public announcement by mid-December 2005.
Winners will be announced at EPICon-2006 in San Antonio, TX, March 18, 2006. See EPICon 2006 for more information.
EPPIE trophies will be awarded to those winners in attendance. Winners who are not present will receive their trophies by USPS or other shipment method.
Finalists in the 2006 EPPIES will receive official certificates mailed to them prior to EPICon 2006.

The Voice of Electronic Publishing
EPIC, the Electronically Published Internet Connection, is a professional organization for published and contracted e-book and print authors. It was established to provide a strong voice for electronic publishing.
Even though E-Publishing is a relatively new venue, there are many readers, writers, and traditionally published authors who believe this is one of the major marketplaces of the future. EPIC exists to help professional writers learn more about the best publishing opportunities on the Internet and to provide networking opportunities for exchange of information about promotion and market growth.
Among our members, you'll find writers of action/adventure, fantasy, historical, horror, inspirational, mystery, romance, science fiction, suspense, time travel, war, westerns, stories for children and young adults—in short, all the most popular fiction genres, as well as non-fiction self-help and how-to.
