The 2014 Cóyotl Awards ceremony was held last Thursday, September 24th, at Rainfurrest. It immediately followed one of the best-attended Furry Writers’ Guild meetings so far, so we had a good crowd — more people than chairs!
The ceremony was kicked off by our Mooster-of-Ceremonies Daniel Lowd with an original song. For those who weren’t lucky enough to hear this song in person — or who wish to hear it again — here’s the video.
We had quite a few of this year’s nominees in attendance, as well as several nominees and winners from previous years. In particular, Tarl Hoch and Renee Carter Hall were able to receive their awards in person:
