To help ensure that our judges have enough time to thoroughly read - and fairly judge - each book, a "tiered" deadline calendar has been implemented. The nomination due date will be determined by the publication date. The 2024 deadlines are:
GENRE, AUDIOBOOK, and ANN BANNON Nominations:
The nomination timeline will be as follows (all dates are between January 1, 2023 - January 21, 2024):
Tee Corinne Nominations:
The nomination timeline will be as follows:
Finalists will be announced on the website in early May 2024 as each category is tallied and finalized. Finalists will also be notified via email.
*Book cover images are due at the time of nomination.
Tee Corinne Award for Outstanding Cover Design
Book covers must be entered in a specific judged genre category (e.g., Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Historical Fiction) to be eligible.
Nominations must be received NO LATER THAN December 31, 2023
Fees paid by credit card or Paypal are due at the time of nomination. Fees made by check must be received NO LATER THAN January 15, 2024
*Winners for all other awards will be announced at the 2024 GCLS Awards Ceremony In Twin Cities Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN July 10 - 14.
**Please note: Books are judged against detailed criteria, not against each other. Thus, a book read and judged in November will be evaluated against the same criteria as a book read and judged in March.
