The Awards Committee offers the following guidelines for publications, websites, and individuals worthy of consideration for nomination for the annual NCGS Awards:
Comparing one publication with another in its category to consider which is more worthy of an award, NCGS Award judges take into account what is good and what needs improvement in each publication with a number of specific qualities being considered, as appropriate, for periodicals, books, and websites.
Detailed criteria are available in the following document: NCGS Awards Guidelines.
