Congratulations Winners!

7 Things to do if you are a finalist or winner in the Chanticleer International Writing Competitions:


    Rob won First Place in Category for the Dante Rossetti Awards–this is an effective and classy way to get the message across.

    Register for the Chanticleer Authors Conference. If you are awarded a First Place Category you can walk up to the podium and accept your book award! Grand Prizes are announced the night of our Awards Gala so you will want to be there is your name is called. We also have a public, 3-day, staffed book room where all attendees books may be featured and sold. Of course, you do not have to be present to win or receive your book awards package. However, it is a great time! 

  2. Announce, promote, push it out there into the universe. Tweet about it. Use Hashtags like: #bookawards #finalist #chanticleerfamily. And don’t forget to mention @chantireviews so we can retweet it for you!
  3. Update your website to reflect your finalist or winner status. Update your book page on Amazon. Goodreads. Kobo. Wherever you can enter book award information about your book. If you are first in category you get a snazzy digital badge. Use it!
  4. Put it on your bookmarks, postcards, shelf-talkers and other promotional material.
  5. Put it on your book cover. A small blurb on the front cover is usually the classiest way to go. And don’t forget our gold winner stickers for first place winners!
  6. Find your digital badge below and use it on your social media, blog posts, and website. It is designed for digital use, not print use. It will look best in a digital medium.
  7. Fill out our social survery to make it easier for us to find you on social media.
