The First Deadline for the 2018 Darrell Awards Has Passed

As reported here previously, we operate the Darrell Awards on the basis of three deadlines. The first of those (the publication deadline) has now passed. It was Halloween 2017, a few days ago.

What this means is that if your work or the work that you want to nominate was not published October 31, 2017, it is not eligible for the 2018 Darrell Awards. Anything otherwise eligible that is published after the publication deadline can be considered for the 2019 Darrell Awards, but not for the 2018 Darrell Awards.

Our next deadline is the Nomination Deadline, which this year is extra early: DECEMBER 1, 2017.

This was changed from the previous nomination deadline because MidSouthCon (at which the Darrell Awards are presented) will be held earlier than usual in 2018, so we need to turn in our list of Finalists to them earlier than usual.

Please take note of the Nomination Deadline of December 1, 2017. If your work or the work you want to nominate is not nominated by that deadline, it will not be considered for the 2018 Darrell Awards.

You can find the 2018 Darrell Awards Nomination Form in multiple formats here: 2018 Nomination Form.

We look forward to receiving your nominations before December 1, 2017. Thank you !

As mentioned in previous posts here, the Darrell Awards operates on the basis of 3 deadlines. The first of those has passed — the publication deadline (October 31st).

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.
