Ed Reiter, Executive Director of the Numismatic Literary Guild forwarded this press release about the organization's 2017 Writers’ Competition. Get your entries in, authors (and
editors)! The NLG is not affiliated with the Numismatic Bibliomania Society, but many active researchers and writers are members of both (like myself). -Editor
Entries are now being accepted for the Numismatic Literary Guild’s 2017 Writers’ Competition. The contest covers a broad spectrum of categories, including books on numismatic subjects;
newspaper and magazine articles and columns; online websites, articles, columns and blogs; numismatic newsletters; auction catalogs; and TV, radio and audio-visual presentations.
To be eligible for consideration, entries must have been published, posted, broadcast or presented between May 1, 2016 and April 30, 2017. Entrants must be NLG members.
Entries must be received by June 19, 2017.
Rules for several categories have been modified to reflect the growing importance of online numismatic writing. However, the numbering system for categories has been retained from last year to
avoid confusion by entrants and judges. This is one more reason to read the rules carefully before submitting entries.
Winners will be announced at the 2017 NLG Bash, which will be held on the night of Thursday, Aug. 3, in the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel during the 2017 World’s Fair of Money. Award plaques
bearing the official NLG logo will be presented to winners during the Bash.
Because of sharp increases in shipping costs plus cumbersome security regulations, winners who live in foreign countries, other than Canada and Mexico, will be given certificates and cash awards
instead of plaques. First-place winners will receive $50 apiece, entrants cited for Extraordinary Merit will receive $25 each and both will get award certificates suitable for framing.
Complete rules, including the address where entries should be sent, are posted on the NLG’s website, www.nlgonline.org .
The Numismatic Literary Guild, founded in 1968, is an organization made up of several hundred writers, authors, editors, publishers, photographers, catalogers, curators and other
individuals from around the world who are engaged in publicizing and promoting numismatics through writing and related skills. -Editor
