CRIME WRITERS' ASSOCIATION'S
CARTIER DIAMOND DAGGER PRIZE 
1986-2003

This Crime Writers' Association award, The Crime Writers' Association award,  sponsored by Cartier, is given to a writer in recognition for a lifetime's achievement in the genre of crime writing. For this coveted award the CWA selects writers who meet two essential criteria. First, their careers must be marked by sustained excellence, and second, they must have made a significant contribution to crime fiction published in the English language, whether originally or in translation. The award is made purely on merit without reference to age, gender or nationality. The 2003 Diamond Dagger will be presented to Robert Barnard at the British Museum on May 7, 2003.
