The Society of Professional Obituary Writers Awards
The Society of Professional Obituary Writers honors excellence in obituary writing with the Grimmies. Obituaries are submitted by reporters and editors from all over the world, and blind-judged by a panel of our members. Winners receive trophies, and are feted at the SPOW conference.
