Dorrys Nominations – Books
It’s time for the 2019 Dorrys, a reader-selected celebration of achievement in performing, visual, and literary arts.

This year's awards celebrate music that was created/performed between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019.

Nominations are now being accepted in six fields – Art, Literature, Music, Film, Drama, and Performing Arts. From reader submissions, between 4 and 10 nominees in each category will be announced in October. Categories may be eliminated, added, or retitled to accommodate the quality of submissions. (A category could be eliminated or combined, for instance, if only two entries are nominated.)

Since the awards are by, for, and about Law and Order Party readers, nominations are only open to current email subscribers. You’re invited to submit nominations in as many (or as few) categories as you wish.

NOTE FOR ARTISTS/GALLERIES/etc: You are totally welcome to nominate yourself in as many categories as you feel worthy! But ONLY on one condition: that you also support other local people by nominating someone else in at least one other field.

From reader submissions, between 4 and 10 nominees in each category will be announced in October. Categories may be eliminated, added, or retitled to accommodate the quality of submissions. (A category could be eliminated or combined, for instance, if only two entries are nominated.)
