World Fantasy Awards

Submitting a work

The judges for the 2021 World Fantasy Awards, for work published in 2020, have now been empanelled. The judges read and consider eligible materials received between now and June 1, 2021, the earlier the better. If, for instance, a work is received on May 31 the judges may well have only one day to read it before their deliberations conclude. Anything received after June 1 will receive little or no consideration.
