Call for Entries for the 2010 Colorado Book Awards


Dear Authors, Illustrators, Photographers, Editors & Publishers,

The Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book is now accepting entries for the 2010 Colorado Book Awards. We invite you to enter your qualified book(s) for a 2010 Colorado Book Award.


To be eligible for a 2010 Colorado Book Award, the primary contributor to the book must be a Colorado writer, editor, illustrator or photographer, and the entry must have a 2009 publication date. Current Colorado residents are eligible, as are individuals engaged in ongoing literary work in the state and contributors whose personal history, identity, or literary work reflect a strong Colorado influence. A contributor not currently a Colorado resident who feels his or her work is inspired by or connected to Colorado should submit a letter with his/her entry describing the connection. Final eligibility determinations will be made by the Colorado Book Awards Advisory Committee.

Additional entry guidelines are available on our website. The Colorado Book Awards program celebrates the accomplishments of Colorado’s literary community and promotes their work to Colorado readers. Deadlines & Fees

To be considered, contributors or publishers should submit the completed application along with a $50 processing fee and 7 copies of the nominated book (digital books must provide a CD or flash drive with document) to Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book. Our address is provided on the form.

All entries must be postmarked or delivered to the Colorado Humanities office no later than January 15, 2010.

2010 Colorado Book Award Information & Applications
Participate as a Category Selector or Judge

If you would like to participate as a Book Award Selector or Judge, we are now looking for qualified volunteers.

Participation as a category selector or judge requires you to read the submitted book in the category of your expertise and participate in thoughtful, critical discussions with other Selectors and Judges to determine the 2010 Finalists and Winners. The time commitment varies from category to category based on the number of entrants and finalists. Either way, it’s a great way to participate, even if you are not an entrant in the Awards program for 2010.

You many not participate as a Selector or Judge in any category if you have a booked entered in the same year.

Further details and an application are available on our website. Click the link below and follow the links to Colorado Book Awards.
