Trophies will be given to the winners at the awards presentation on Friday, June 22, at the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference at Biola University. If a winning author is not present, a representative chosen by the author may accept the trophy on his/her behalf. If no one is present to accept the trophy, it will be shipped to the author after the event.
