The CWA Dagger Awards are the longest established literary awards in the UK and are internationally recognised as a mark of excellence and achievement.
The Crime Writers Association was established in 1953 by crime writer John Creasey. The Daggers began with what was originally known as the Crossed Red Herring Award in 1955 and have grown from there. 10 Daggers are awarded every year.
The Daggers name and Crossed Daggers logo are registered Trade Marks of the Crime Writers’ Association.
