UBC Library and BC Bookworld are now receiving submissions for the annual Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Book on British Columbia

Entries can be written or edited by any Canadian (s) and the subject matter must pertain to British Columbia. The author need not be formally affiliated with a university or college.  An educational mandate or perspective will be sufficient to merit the term scholarly if the quality of the writing and research is sufficiently high. Books can be deemed eligible only once, on a calendar-year basis. A shortlist of three titles is selected prior to a presentation ceremony hosted at UBC Library during Spring 2014.

There is no entry fee.

Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2013.

To enter, publishers should send three copies of each eligible title to:

Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize
c/o Pacific BookWorld News Society
3516 West 13th Ave.
Vancouver BC V6R 2S3

In the event that a title is not published until December, please email, apprising organizers of a forthcoming submission.
