Judging Process

Judging Process

 

Crime Writers of Canada recruits twenty-one volunteers from among the large body of award-winning writers, reviewers, booksellers, librarians, academics and avid crime fiction fans across Canada. The judges are not required to be CWC members, and many are not. The judges, therefore, represent a broad and knowledgeable cross-section of the reading public. Three judges read and evaluate the entries in each of the seven prize categories. Finalists in all categories are announced at Canada-wide Awards Shortlist Events late in April, and winners are announced at the annual Awards Gala in late May.
