Call for Judges
Applications for Judges for the 2019 Golden Crown Literary Awards are now open until August 20, 2018 [DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO September 10, 2018]. Both members and non-members of the GCLS are eligible to apply to be judges.
Read through the Judging information page then click on the link at the bottom of this page to begin the application process. You will be asked to fill in your personal information, select five preferred categories and agree to the terms and conditions of the Judge's Agreement.
We'll give consideration to all interested parties in a fair, equitable, and professional manner. We have categories that span a vast array of genres, so there is something that should pique many interests. All categories will have up to five judges assigned.
All judges selected will be notified via email regarding category assignment(s). Judging and scoring must be completed no later than April 15, 2019. No exceptions.
All judges will be required to attend two one-hour webinar sessions in order to participate in the judging process. The webinars will include the judging process, a walk-through of the evaluation forms and how to use the online Awards Management/Judging system.
Judges and other members have provided excellent feedback in previous years. You've spoken and we've listened. Thus, as Awards Administrators, we pledge the following:
Thank you for volunteering! We look forward to a fun-filled awards season, culminating in our Annual Awards Ceremony in Pittsburg, PA.
