Please note: we do NOT release a list of those works that have been merely nominated. This is because nominations are open to all; so, even the author or publisher or a relative or friend could nominate the work.
If you know of any works that you believe qualify, please note that the DEADLINE for nominations for the 2016 Darrell Awards has now been set as January 1, 2016.
For Novel, Novella, & Short Story nominees, the period of publication now under consideration is from November 1, 2014, through October 31, 2015 for the 2016 Darrell Awards. Works in those categories published after October 31, 2015 would have to wait until next year for consideration.
Please note that we continue to alternate between our Young Adult category and our Other Media category. For the 2016 Darrell Awards, we will be considering Young Adult works that otherwise qualify and that were published between November 1, 2013, and October 31, 2015 (a two year window of publication). The Darrell Award for Best Other Media Work will not be presented in 2016; that category will be considered for the 2017 Darrell Awards, if we have qualified and worthy nominees.
Any eligible works published before November 1, 2014 might qualify the author for a Hall of Fame nomination, as that is not limited to any given period of publication.
If you are unclear about whether a work you want to nominate is eligible, please contact us at memphissf at cs dot com -- or you can go ahead and nominate it and let us sort it out.For further information on the Darrell Awards, please contact us via email.
