- The award is NOT for the best scenario at that particular Itzacon. It recognises and rewards a writer's dedication and contribution to game writing at a national level.
- The writer(s) must have written for more than one convention since the previous Itzacon, for example Itzacon AND Warpcon/Gaelcon etc rather than two or more of a single convention over a longer period.
- The writer(s) must have submitted a game to Itzacon itself for the current year and the game must be of a calibre that gives enjoyment to its players and is considered excellent in scope and theme by the adjudicating committee.
- The game submitted to Itzacon must have its premiere there and not have debuted at any other convention in Ireland or elsewhere.
- The game should be submitted before the official RPG/LARP deadline.
