Enter your submission here!

Canadian publishing is filled with many dedicated and creative people. While we regularly celebrate our best writers and books, recognition for individuals or entities who make vital and interesting contributions to our industry has been missing for some time.

It is time to celebrate outstanding work in the industry with a new awards program.

The Quill & Quire Awards 2020 will recognize the best in the Canadian book business in the past year.

Worked with amazing people in the past year? Give them a chance to shine and let the industry know of their outstanding contributions. Submit them for the Quill & Quire Awards.

Done exceptional work in the past year? Self-nominations are welcome and encouraged.

Collaborative submissions are also encouraged (e.g. publisher and bookseller nominating a sales representative).

Tell us how the nominee has been remarkable. Testimonials, photos, and visuals are useful but not required.

Nominations open online February 25.

Nomination/Submission deadline: March 30, 2020.
Entry fee: $50 CAD per entry early bird (by March 16)
Regular: $65
