This is quite an issue.  The story "The Puppeteer" by Tim Curran won the 2002/2003 Dark Animus new fiction award and the accompanying illustration by Heesco Khosnaran won the award for best illustration. Alec Kowalczyk won the Dark Animus award for best poem for "Mirrorrim" which appears in this issue. 

 Regina Brewster came in second for her illustration for "Kathleen, Furnished with Bees."  "Puppet Graveyard" by George Higham, came in second in the new fiction category, and the cover by Heesco came in second for the year's best cover.
