Call for Submissions: NorthWords Book Awards

Submissions are now open!

NorthWords NWT offers two annual book awards for outstanding books published in the previous year by a northern author.

Established in 2010 the NorthWords Book Award recognizes an outstanding book, set in the North and published by an NWT author in the previous year.

In 2017, with funding from NT Power Corporation, the NorthWords Youth Book Award was created to recognize outstanding youth literature.

Winners will be announced during the festival at the NorthWords Gala on May 29, 2020.

Both book awards include a $1,000 prize for the winner.
