During Crown consideration, publications are judged on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage and writing. A total of 1,172 publications were eligible for judging.Crown Finalists are actual winners, not nominees. Some will be announced as Gold Crowns; the rest are Silver Crowns. Final results will be announced and presented at the CSPA ceremonies in March 2019.
