Eligibility and Submissions | The Sunburst Award Society


The Sunburst Awards, an annual celebration of excellence in Canadian fantastic literature, announces that its 2017 call for submissions is now open.

The Sunburst Awards Society brings together a varying panel of distinguished jurors each year to select the best full length work of literature of the fantastic written by a Canadian in both Adult and Young Adult categories. The Sunburst Awards has also added a short story award category last year. Short stories published in anthologies, magazines or collections or online all qualify.

Full submission requirements for all categories are found on the Sunburst Awards website at www.sunburstaward.org/submissions.

Interested publishers and authors are asked to submit entries as early as possible, to provide this year’s jurors sufficient time to read each work. The cut-off date for submissions is January 31, 2017; books and stories received after that date will not be considered.

The short-listed works will be announced in the summer of 2017 and the winning works will be announced in the autumn of 2017.
