Call for Entries for the 2011 Colorado Book Awards


The Colorado Humanities & Center for the Book is now accepting entries for the 2011, 20th Annual Colorado Book Awards. We invite you to enter your qualified book(s) for a 2011 Colorado Book Award.

To be eligible for a 2011 Colorado Book Award, the primary contributor to the book must be a Colorado writer, editor, illustrator or photographer, and the entry must have a 2010 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, forms and a link to our online Submission Manager are all available at

The Center is also looking qualified volunteers for Book Award Selectors or Judges.

Participation as a category selector or judge requires you to read the submitted books in the category of your expertise and participate in thoughtful, critical discussions with other Selectors and Judges to determine the 2011 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 2011.

Further details and an application are available on their website.

If you have any questions regarding the online submission manager, forms or submission process, please contact Jennifer Long at
