7-30-21 This year’s schedule is on target for an early September winner announcement. We’re currently finishing up our detailed administrative review of all entries. We catch bad URLs, missing passwords, non-blind entries, and incorrectly classified work during this review stage. 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 if you receive an email requesting particulars for one of your entries.
