As the Darrell Awards have been presented at MidSouthCon every year (except the 1 year there was no con) and as this year’s MidSouthCon has been postponed due to the COVID19 pandemic, the question has been raised :
What About the 2020 Darrell Awards?
First, they will be given.
Second, the Winners and Runners-up and other Finalists will be announced here and on other social media.
Third, the details of how and when for the above will be decided by the Jury shortly.
We want to have a robust discussion on this situation with an eye toward establishing a protocol for future use — and to do so while respecting the requirements of social distancing.
So, please be patient. And please check back here in a day or two.
The second is approaching — the nomination deadline. If you know of any work which you believe is eligible, you have until January 1, 2016, to nominate it. After that, it will be too late for it to be considered.
So, if you know of any eligible works, please NOMINATE them before 1-1-16.
We are accepting nominations until 1-1-16 for eligible works in novel, novella, short story, and Young Adult categories, as well as for the Coger Memorial Hall of Fame.
