Dayne Ogilvie Prize 2007-2013

from wikipedia accessed 7/6/13

The Dayne Ogilvie Prize is a Canadian literary award, presented annually by the Writers' Trust of Canada to an emerging Canadian writer who is part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The award was originally established as the Dayne Ogilvie Grant in memory of Dayne Ogilvie, a book editor, writer, arts manager and former managing editor of Xtra! who died in October 2006, by artist Robin Pacific, and was renamed from a grant to a prize in 2012.
Established in 2007, the CAD4,000 prize is presented for the writer's body of work. It is the only prize of its kind in Canada serving the LGBT community; any self-identifying writer is eligible. To qualify, writers must have published at least one book of fiction or poetry. The winner is selected by an independent jury of three members, and presented annually during Toronto's Pride Week celebrations.
In addition to the primary winner, the award also frequently presents an Honour of Distinction worth CAD500 to one or CAD250 to two additional writers. Authors who are awarded the Honour of Distinction remain eligible for the primary award in future years.

Carnegie Medal for Children's Literature (1936-2013)

Historical information from Wikipedia, accessed 7/6/13

The Carnegie Medal in Literature was established in the UK in 1936 in honour of Scottish philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. It is awarded to an outstanding book for children and young adult readers. Nominated books must be written in English and should first have been published in the UK during the year before. The Carnegie judging panel consists of 13 children's librarians from the Youth Libraries Group of Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). Nominated books are also read by students from many schools who send feedback to the judging panel. CILIP also recognizes excellence in illustration, with the Kate Greenaway Medal.
The award is announced in the June following the year of publication. The winner receives a golden medal and £500 worth of books to donate to a public or school library.
The original rules stated that an author could only win the Medal once. This rule was later changed to enable subsequent work by the same author to be included for consideration.

Nominated books must be southern in nature or by a southern author, have been published the previous year, and have been nominated by a SIBA-member bookstore or one of their customers. Voting categories include fiction, non-fiction, poetry, cooking and children's literature. The award was originally called the "SEBA" Book Award.

Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence 2004-2013

from wikipedia accessed 6/27/13

The Lieutenant Governor's Award for Literary Excellence is administered by the BC Book Prizes and recognizes a writer who has contributed significantly to the development of literary excellence in British Columbia, as well as having written a substantial body of literary work throughout his or her career.

The recipient receives a cash award of $5,000 and a commemorative certificate.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence was first conceived in the spring of 2002. Led by the late Carol Shields, a group of respected BC writers met with the current Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Iona Campagnolo to initiate a special provincial literary arts award. Inspired by Shields, this meeting resulted in the establishment of the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence.

Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award 1985-2013

from wikipedia accessed 6/27/13

The Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award is a literary prize awarded annually by the BC Book Prizes for the "best book in terms of public appeal, initiative, design, production and content." The prize is shared by the author and publisher. To qualify, the publisher must be located in British Columbia or the Yukon and in full creative control (editing, design and production). The winner, unlike the other prizes which are determined by judges, is selected by ballot sent to bookstores across the province of British Columbia.

The award is named in honour of BC bookseller Bill Duthie who founded Duthie's Books in 1957. It was first awarded in 1985 and was one of the original four prizes awarded by the BC Book Prizes. The prize used to be called "BC Booksellers' Choice Award in Honour of Bill Duthie" but the name was simplified in 2010 to align with the other BC Book Prizes.

Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize 2003-2013

from wikipedia accessed 6/27/13

The Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize is awarded annually as the BC Book Prize for the author and illustrator of the best picture books, picture story books, and illustrated non-fiction books. The prize is shared by the author and the illustrator, who must be a resident of British Columbia or the Yukon, Canada. It was announced in 2002 and first awarded in 2003. A handful of finalists (roughly 25%) are also selected for another award: participation in the expenses-paid BC Book Prizes on Tour, a week-long tour across the province to present their books at schools and libraries each April.

The prize was announced three months after the death of Christie Harris, and was the first new BC Book Prize category since the Sheila A. Egoff Children's Literature Prize was introduced in 1987.
