The Blackfox Awards are given for excellence in a variety of areas related to local and Kingdom newsletters. They were instituted in memory of Master William Blackfox, author and illustrator of the Warthaven cartoons, which he generously sent every month for many years for publication in the various kingdom newsletters.
Each spring Kingdom Chroniclers across the Known World peruse the past year of local newsletters within their kingdoms, chose a maximum of three deserving examples for each of the award categories, and submit them to the Society Chronicler and her panel of judges for consideration. These worthies ponder the entries, and eventually come to a decision, which is announced in the Fall issues of Tournaments Illuminated.
