Most years, winners are scheduled for announcement in July of each year. The exact winner announcement date is fluid being contingent on the judging teams progress.
** 2020 UPDATE** This year’s schedule was delayed by two months due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The rescheduled deadline allowed participants to get on a more solid footing with many staff migrating to home or other forms of safe working. We’re currently finishing up our detailed administrative review of all entries. During this review stage, we catch bad URLs, missing passwords, non-blind entries, and incorrectly classified work. Our staff takes this review seriously out of respect for our high-caliber, vetted judges. We don’t want to bog them down with any sloppy moments. Keep an eye on your inbox in case you receive an email requesting particulars for one of your entries.
A few tidbits while we wait.
