Each year, the convention members nominate two of the entries for each category on the awards ballot. To this, the judges can add three or more nominees. No indictation of the nominee source appears on the final ballot. The judges are chosen by the World Fantasy Awards Administration. Winners will be announced at the 2003 World Fantasy Convention Banquet on November 2, 2003 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, Washington DC.
All nominated material must have been published in 2002 or have a 2002 cover date. Only living persons may be nominated. All Fantasy is eligible, from supernatural horror to Tolkienesque to sword & sorcery to the occult to children’s and YA books, and beyond.
When listing stories or other material that may not be familiar to all the judges, please include pertinent information such as author, editor, publisher, magazine name, and date, etc.
You may nominate up to five items in each category, in no particular order. These items are not point-rated. You don't have to nominate items in every category but you must nominate in more than one. The two items in each category receiving the most nominations (except for ineligible nominations) will be placed on the final ballot. The remainder are added by the judges.

We now have a slate of five judges for the World Fantasy Awards. Materials to be considered for awards must be received, no later than June 1, 2003, by all five judges with an additional copy to the World Fantasy Awards Association.
If you have any material that you wish to be considered by the panel, please send them directly to the each judge, and very importantly, please mark any packages as World Fantasy Awards Materials. Also, please make sure to send a file copy of any and all materials to the Awards Administrator so a comprehensive list may be kept, as well as backup copies for any that are lost or misplaced. This is the only way the judges can consider all eligible items, and you can be sure that your work has been given fair attention.
