Information about the #CIBA Long Lists and Short Lists
These titles have moved forward in the judging rounds from SLUSH pile to the 2018 GOETHE Book Awards LONG LIST (aka the Slush Pile Survivors). We incorporate the Long List when the judges request an additional round of judging to accommodate the number and/or quality of entries received. These entries are now in competition for the 2018 GOETHE SHORT LIST. Short Listers will compete for the Semi-Finalists positions. Semi-Finalists will compete for the coveted First Place Category Winners of the 2018 GOETHE Book Awards in the final rounds of judging. The First Place Category winners will automatically be entered into the Goethe GRAND PRIZE AWARD competition. The 16 CBR Grand Prize Genre Winners will compete for the CBR Overall Grand Prize for Best Book and its $1,000 purse.
