It has NOTHING to do with CQ Magazine. At all. 
It depends on the management of that particular Contest, period.
If it is take only FIVE months for CQ RTTY WPX Contest Director to publish the  Results and SHORTLY after then to ship out all the plaques, certificates etc - that means that this Director DOES the Job (of course not paid). 
(CQ WW RTTY Contest takes, if I am not mistaken-about seven months to get their reuslts)
If it takes almost a year (10 months) for CQ WW CW or SSB Contest to publish the Results and then in three or whatever years to send out the plaques - that means that those Directors are NOT doing their job, end of story. Simple.
My personal exsperience - I did wait just two years after 1995 CQ WW SSB Contest to get my Plaque. 
Now it seems things got worse. 
The Director must go if he does not do his job but I doubt if here is any other person who will be handling all that paperwork, I doubt it. 
So, the Director will stay, until he decides to reside by himself.
The management of CQ Magazine and the management of any Contest is Not the same, guys. 
You've gotta realize that.
CQ Magazine is a GOOD stuff. Period.

Good job! Three years is excellent from CQ. My best (worst) for
receiving a CQWW plaque was eight years including three personal
appeals to management.

A month, or so, ago I received a Certificate from a 2002 contest. It
took 3 years to get here. (I'll bet it only takes them 3 minutes to
cash a subscription , or advertiser's, check)
