CWA Daggers Submissions Open

Nominations are now open for the 2021 Crime Writers’ Association Daggers awards, which honor the best in crime writing, with new timings and nomination procedures announced. The revamp will bring the announcements of Dagger longlists, shortlists, and winners much closer to when nominated titles were published. Publishers are invited to nominate eligible titles published between April 1 and December 31, 2020; all submissions must be made by November 30. Publishers will receive a half-price discount when they nominate titles by authors who are fully subscribed CWA members. Nomination fees are payable by PayPal or Stripe on nomination.
