  Philip K Dick Award  
The Philip K. Dick Award is given to the best original paperback published each year in the US. The awards were created and named for the writer who, though increasingly renowned after his death in 1982, was published mostly in undistinguished paperback editions during his career.
Scope
Original SF paperback published in the US. Can include trade paperbacks, but not simultaneous hardcover/trade paperback editions.
Where & When
Annually in March at the Norwescon
Process
Five judges read submissions from publishers and determine the shortlist, then the winner. Judges choose their own successors, and only writers or academics are eligible to be judges.
History
Founded by Thomas M. Disch, in honor of Philip K. Dick, who published most of his books as paperback originals
