The Darrell Awards Runs on Three Deadlines

The Darrell Awards runs on 3 deadlines. They are:

1) Publication Deadline. In order to qualify, a work has to be published (made available to the public) no later than October 31 of the year under consideration. So, for the 2015 Darrell Awards (which is what the Jury is evaluating now), this deadline is October 31, 2014. In other words, Halloween — 15 days from now.

2) Nomination Deadline. In order to be considered, a work has to be Nominated no later than January 1st of the year under consideration. For the 2015 Darrell Awards, that deadline is 1-1-15. Please visit our website at for the Nomination form in multiple formats and NOMINATE all eligible works.

3) Reporting Deadline. We have to tell MidSouthCon’s Registration Department who we have chosen as Finalists by March 1st so they can be included as pre-registered for their one free Saturday pass and their one free Banquet ticket. We generally hit this deadline and we will release a list of Finalists as soon as the list is set.

The next meeting of the Darrell Awards Jury is this weekend. Please NOMINATE as soon as you can.
