2022 Alberta Book Publishing Awards Call for Juror Nominations
The Book Publishers Association of Alberta is seeking qualified jurors to help select the winners of the 2022 Alberta Book Publishing Awards program. Jury packages will be distributed in early March, and meetings will take place in May. Each jury will be expected to attend one meeting over Zoom which should last about an hour. Jurors will be awarded an honorarium for this work, and are welcome to keep the books after the adjudication process wraps up.
As this is a publishing industry award, we are looking for Canadian jurors with experience in the professional publishing industry. Self-nominations and returning jurors are welcome along with those new to the program. We are actively looking to diversify and expand our pool of jurors, and encourage nominations from and on behalf of publishing professionals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of colour, people with disabilities, people identifying as LGBTQ2, and people facing economic barriers.
For consideration for the 2022 program, please submit nominations through our Google Form by January 21, 2022. Nominations submitted through this form may be saved for future years, and only those selected to serve on juries will be contacted.
