The Gold Dagger Award was an award given annually by the Crime Writers' Association for best crime novel of the year. For its first five years, it was known as the Crossed Red Herring Award. From 1995 to 2002 the award was known as the Macallan Gold Dagger. From 2006 - 2008 the award was officially renamed the Duncan Lawrie Dagger, and gained a prize fund of £20,000, making it the biggest crime-fiction award in the world, in monetary terms.
For many years, a Silver Dagger Award was also awarded, essentially a runners-up trophy. However, when Duncan Lawrie acquired sponsorship, this award was dropped. Only British publishers can submit entries for the awards, and the submissions must have been published in the English language in the UK .
