Stabby Awards Funding 2020

Reddit's /r/Fantasy is the largest speculative fiction discussion forum on the internet. We've hosted the Stabby Awards annually since 2012. Winners receive bragging rights, industry recognition, and a fancy engraved dagger award. 

This project provides the funding for the engraved daggers to be purchased and shipped. Winners can potentially live anywhere in the world, as our community spans the globe, so shipping can become expensive quickly.

Stabby daggers, including shipping, have averaged out to about $50 in previous years. Depending on the winners, more than one Stabby may be needed per award category. We have 23 categories this year. We've sent Stabbies out each year since 2013, so we're pretty experienced at this portion of the awards process.

Please make sure to nominate and vote for the Stabby Awards on /r/Fantasy, and even if you can't contribute, please be sure to share. Our /r/Fantasy community has grown by leaps and bounds, and we love you all.

Should we have any extra funds left after distributing the daggers to all the winners, the remainder will be donated to Worldbuilders.
