Debut Dagger Competition ends

The CWA Debut Dagger Competition for 2014 is closed. We are now busy ensuring all of the entries are logged, referenced and sent to our teams of readers whose job it is to consider all submissions and to draw up the shortlist.

This year our judging panel includes Alison Joseph, Robert Peett, Leigh Russell, Sarah Hodgson and David Headley.

Shortlisted authors will be announced at CrimeFest in May 2014 and the winner will be announced at our CWA Dagger Awards Dinner on the 30th June in London.

We will contact ALL entrants to let them know whether they have been shortlisted but please be aware the judge’s decision is final and we will not enter into any correspondence about the results.
