The Kitschies, presented by The Kraken Rum, reward the year's most progressive, intelligent and entertaining works that contain elements of the speculative or fantastic.

Winners receive a total of £2,000 in prize money, an iconic Tentacle trophy and a bottle of The Kraken's fine black rum.

Category           Total   Female   Male  ?  F/T      Comments
Red Tentacle         5       2       3        .4
Golden Tentacle      5       4       1        .8 
Inky Tentacle        5               4    1    0       La Boca is a studio?

Aside from the Inky Tentacle, not too bad for spec fic and kind of astounding for something that seems at first glance to be British.

Explanations of the categories at other end of link.

I note that the criteria listed for each category is "intelligent, progressive and entertaining". So it's not just an F&SF prize, it seems to be a specifically liberal one.

The very existence of such a thing may be cause for wonder...

Kind of astonishing for something hosted at a site called pornokitsch.

The name is a bit misleading.

Since 2008, (http://www.pornokitsch.com/about-pornokitsch.html)Pornokitsch has been gleefully chatting about geek culture - with a focus on books, movies, games, comics and television. Our mission is to treat genre fiction seriously and examine it thoroughly, for better or for worse.

If it helps, La Boca is definitely a studio.
