The DC-IBWA votes twice each season:
1) Preseason Predictions; a survey of members on relevant topics for the upcoming season
2) Postseason Player Achievement Awards; honoring members of the Washington Nationals for their achievements in the previous season.
Preseason survey results announced on Opening Day. Postseason Awards are announced the day after the regular season ends.
In addition, the Association recognizes excellence within the traditional and on-line media community, voting for their favorite professional and non-professional Nationals writers at the conclusion of each season.
