The Western Magazine Awards has temporarily suspended receipt of online entries to the competition because of problems with their website. An online note from Jane Zatylny, the president of the awards says
We regret that some entrants are experiencing challenges in regards to their online submission of entries to the competition. We are working closely with the website provider to resolve these issues. Accordingly, we have decided to temporarily suspend the submission process for the 2014 Awards Competition until we have the full confidence in the website. Our intention is to have all areas of the website corrected, re-tested and verified before the end of this month. As soon as the problems have been resolved, we will let you know and will post new deadlines at the beginning of April when we reopen the submission process.
For those who have already provided a submission, or are in the process of submitting, please be assured that your entries will be maintained.
In the meantime, I would like to thank you for your understanding and patience as we deal with these technical challenges.The original entry deadlines were March 31 for early bird discount and April 30 for all entries. The awards are scheduled for September 26 in Vancouver at the Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside.
