2019 Goldie Finalists

2019 Golden Crown Literary Awards Finalists

 

Here are the finalists for the 2019 GCLS Awards. Finalists and winners are calculated according to the Board-approved recommendations of the Independent Review Committee. Information about how finalists and winners are determined may be found on the Awards Changes page.

  • To the extent possible, aggregate categories so there are at least six entries in one category
  • Adopt the 25%-10% rule to determine finalists and winners based on the number of eligible nominations:
    • 25% of entries are finalists
    • 10% of entries are winners

Under each Category are the number of finalists and winners according to the 25%-10% rule. This rule only applies to Judged Categories; the Ann Bannon Popular Choice and Tee Corinne Award for Outstanding Cover Art are not affected.

Important dates:

  • Finalists for the Ann Bannon Popular Choice Award and Tee Corinne Award for Outstanding Cover Art are announced in March 2019
  • Finalists for the judged categories will be posted in batches after judging ends on April 15, 2019 and the results verified; finalists will be posted in early May 2019
  • Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony to take place during the Annual Conference in Pittsburgh in July 2019

[Please note: Nominators may optionally provide a link to purchase the nominated book. The link is posted for reference only and is not an endorsement of any particular merchant on the part of the GCLS.]
