The first of our 3 deadlines for the 2018 Darrell Awards is coming up soon.
The deadlines are:
1) Publication by October 31, 2017. If it is not published by then, it is not eligible for the 2018 Awards. It may be eligible for the 2019 Darrell Awards, but not the 2018 ones.
2) Nomination by December 1, 2017. If it is not nominated by December 1st (earlier than in previous years due to MidSouthCon being earlier in March), it will not be considered, even if it is eligible. SOME eligible works may still still qualify for nomination in future years for the Hall of Fame award, but not all of them will — so get your nominations in by December 1st.
3) Finalists will be released by February 1, 2018.
So, there you have it. Published no later than Halloween of this year, nominated no later than December 1st of this year, and we will let everyone know who the Finalists are by February 1 of 2018.
