There are two separate awards. The book award is set at $5,000 and the magazine award is set at $2,000. Both awards are made available to freelance writers of non-fiction for social justice writing that is exceptionally written, well researched and demonstrates excellence of storytelling. The Book and Magazine awards are unique in that they are generally awarded before the writer completes a book or magazine project for publication.
Since the awards can be given before publication and book and magazine publishing timelines can differ, so do the requirements for each award. Please select the Book or Magazine links below to view the specific requirements that apply to each award.
Applicant must be a continuing resident of Canada and at the date of application lived in Canada for the last twelve months.
