We need your recommendations of works for the Otherwise Award jurors to consider. If you’ve read a work of science fiction or fantasy that explores or expands our understanding of gender, please tell us about it by filling out the recommendation form below. If you have more than one, just fill out the form again for each recommendation.

Anything that you enter in the Author, Title, Publisher, Link, and Additional Comments fields will be publicly visible. If you want to add non-public comments about the work that you’re recommending, email recommendations@otherwiseaward.org.

The Additional Comments field is optional, but we recommend saying something in that field about the ways in which the work explores or expands gender.

Because anyone can recommend a work, a work’s presence on this list doesn’t indicate recognition by the Otherwise Award, so please don’t use a work’s presence on this list to promote the work. You’re welcome to promote works that win the award, or that appear on an Honor List.

Recommendations for this year’s award close in December, 2024. The 2024 Otherwise Award will be given in 2025, location to be determined.

To let us know something related to recommendations that doesn’t fit in the form, email recommendations@otherwiseaward.org.
