Entry deadlines for WWA’s Spur Awards will be staggered, based upon publication dates, beginning with 2020 competition for material published or released for the first time in 2019.

Material first published or released between January 1 and August 31, 2019 must be received, along with entry forms, by the category judges and Spur chair no later than October 1. For material first published or released between September 1 and December 31, 2019, entries must be received no later than January 15, 2020.

WWA’s board of directors unanimously approved the deadlines during a teleconference January 31. The decision was made to ease the burden of volunteer judges.

Entries received after either deadline will be disqualified.

Rules and entry forms are scheduled to be published in the August issue of Roundup Magazine and posted on the WWA website in August.
