The challenge begins in February when the previous year’s Whitney Award Finalists are announced at www.whitneyawards.com, and lasts until the end of April when the Academy ballots are due. The exact start and end dates vary from year to year.
We use Rafflecopter to track entries and randomly select prizes.
You must be a current member of the Whitney Academy to participate in the “Read ‘em All” Challenge.
