ONLY products released between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015 will be considered valid submissions.
You may submit either a print copy of your product or an electronic copy of your product, but not both.
To enter, please do the following:
Print Products: Ready and ship six copies of each product. Pre-made address labels can be found here. We need six copies of each title: one for each judge and one for the “6th Copy” which is used as reference material for the Board of Directors during the judging period, for display purposes at Gen Con Indy, and possibly for fund raising purposes.
Note: One of the judge’s addresses will be changing some time in November. As soon as we find out the new address, we’ll update the labels. In the meantime, if you’re planning on shipping in November, please verify the addresses with our Submissions Coordinator Hans Cummings.
Any package with a postmark past May 8th, 2015, will not be accepted. Any e-submission received after May 8th, 2015, will also not be accepted.
Publishers who have already sent a review copy to an ENnies judge for review do not need to send an additional copy.
THE FINE PRINT: Please note that all six of the copies of the product submitted be the ENnies must be the same as the versions largely available to the public. For example, if two judges received a pre-release review copy of a book at Gen Con, that publisher need only send out four more copies – one for the “6th Pile”, and three to the other judges. If the only difference between the pre-release edition of the book and the full release is something that could be easily rectified, for example the pre-release was missing a map, then the publisher can make up the difference by supplying said map; they needn’t send out an entirely new copy of the whole book. If however the publisher put out a Deluxe Edition of the book, if they wish that edition to be considered, they must supply six copies of the Deluxe Edition of the book.
