The CWA Debut Dagger Competition for 2014 is closed. They are now busy ensuring all of the entries are logged, referenced and sent to their teams of readers whose job it is to consider all submissions and to draw up the shortlist which is then sent to their judges.
This year the judging panel includes Alison Joseph, Robert Peett, Leigh Russell, Sarah Hodgson and David Headley.
Shortlisted authors will be announced at a CWA reception at CrimeFest in May 2014 and the winner will be announced at our CWA Dagger Awards Dinner on the 30th June in London.
They will contact ALL entrants to let them know whether they have been shortlisted (although not before this is announced at the reception) but please be aware the judge’s decision is final and they will not enter into any correspondence about the results.
Best of luck to all who entered!
