Last call for the CBC Nonfiction Prize


The 2024 CBC Nonfiction Prize is open for submissions

The prize is open to all Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. Work that has been published online or in print or recorded for broadcast is considered "previously published" and is not eligible. 

Entry fee: $25

Prizes: The winner will receive $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts, have the opportunity to attend a two-week writing residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity and have their work published on CBC Books.

Four finalists will each receive $1,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts and have their story published on CBC Books. And all the longlisted writers will be featured on CBC Books.

Deadline: March 1, 2024. Full guidelines here.
