Gen Con 2019 opens in less than two weeks, and one of the last things that happens before that show opens is the crowning of the winner of the Diana Jones Award.

This year marks the 19th presentation of the Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming, and as noted on its website, "It is presented annually to the person, product, company, event, movement or any other thing that has, in the opinion of its committee, best demonstrated the quality of 'excellence' in the world of hobby-gaming in the previous year." (Disclosure: BGG won the Diana Jones Award in 2010.)

On July 16, 2019, the shortlist for the 2019 DJA was announced, with the items on it consisting of:

Dungeons & Dragons: Art & Arcana, a book by Mike Witwer, Kyle Newman, Jon Peterson, and Sam Witwer from Ten Speed Press
Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr, a board game by Michael Fox and Rory O'Connor fromHub Games
The Mind, a card game by Wolfgang Warsch from NSV and Pandasaurus Games
Star Crossed, a role-playing game by Alex Roberts from Bully Pulpit Games

The winner will be announced the evening of Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
