2003 Mythopoeic Award Nominees

Location: Unknown.

Comments: In 2003, the data concerning where and when the Mythopoeic Awards seems to have gone missing again. For 2002, the information is readily available, but seems to have vanished once more by 2003. I suspect that the 2003 Mythopoeic Awards were handed out on or about July 25 through July 28 at Mythcon 34, but I can't find any confirmation of that. In fact, I suspect that all of the Mythpoeic Awards since the inception of the award have been handed out at the Mythopoeic Society's own convention Mythcon, but since I have no way to confirm this suspicion, I can't in good faith do anything more than speculate that this was the case.
