Nomination Period Extended

Posted by Rob Roehm in News   

Lots of people have asked for a list of possible nominees for the REHF Awards, especially in the essay category. I’ve compiled the list below (with help from Barbara Barrett and the nominations that have already been sent in) and present it as an aid. The list is probably incomplete. If you are aware of something that is missing, please send the titles to info@rehfoundation.org.

Due to “real life” difficulties, we’re extending the deadline to submit nominations to  March 11, 2012. Check back on occasion as the list will be updated when new titles are received. You can nominate up to three (3) in each category. Send nominations to REHFAwards@gmail.com

The AtlanteanOutstanding Achievement, Book (This is for scholarly work relevant to Robert E. Howard, not collections of his fiction. For the purposes of this award, a book is any REH-related publication which is perfect-bound and over 50 pages, single or co-authored.)

BARBARIAN FESTIVAL COMMITTEE – Cross Plains Remembered

The ValusianOutstanding Achievement, Anthology (This is for scholarly work relevant to Robert E. Howard, not collections of his fiction.

Anyone on the below ballot who gets no nominating votes in a given year is removed from the ballot until such time as a Foundation voter casts a write-in vote for them again.)
