2024 Call for Submissions!

Calling all local authors! Submissions are now being accepted for the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize and City of Victoria Children’s Book Prize.

The City of Victoria Butler Book Prize is awarded to a local author for the best book of fiction, literary non-fiction or poetry published in the preceding year. Now in its 21st year, this prize is a partnership between the City of Victoria and Brian Butler of Butler Brothers Supplies. The City of Victoria Children’s Book Prize recognizes and celebrates exceptional authors or illustrators of literature for children or youth. The prize was established in 2008 by the late Mel Bolen of Bolen Books and has been sponsored by the City of Victoria since 2020. Both prizes are presented at a gala event and include $5,000.

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply before May 24, 2024.
