The award honors the efforts of small press publishers in providing a critical venue for short fiction in the area of speculative fiction. The award showcases the best original short fiction published by small presses in the previous year (2010). An unusual feature of the selection process is that all voting is done with the identity of the author (and publisher and editor) hidden so that the final choice is based solely on the quality of the story.

The way the blind judging works is all stories submitted during the first of the year are sent to the award administrator who removes all identifying information regarding author, publisher, and editor from the stories and then send them on to the committee. The award committee then narrows the selection of stories down to 5-8 finalists. These final stories, still with no identifying information, are then read and voted on by the membership of the Washington Science Fiction Association (WSFA). After the votes are in, the list of finalists is announced to the committee, the club, and the general public.

The winner, chosen by the members of the Washington Science Fiction Association (, is announced at their annual convention, Capclave (, held this year on October 14th-16th in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
