The reading period for the Aurealis Awards has opened. Nominate now!
The Aurealis Awards 2009 are for works of speculative fiction by authors, editors and illustrators, who are Australian citizens or permanent residents , first published in English between 1 November 2008 and 31 October 2009.
Works must be formally entered in the awards process to be considered for an Aurealis Award. Go to the online entry form.
The earlier our judges receive the work, the more time they will have to give it the consideration it deserves.
Once a work is entered, you will receive an email acknowledging the entry, and a copy of the judges’ addresses to submit entries for our judges’ consideration.
Entries will be judged solely on their own merits as perceived by the judges.
There is no fee to enter works for the awards, and anyone may enter a work into the Aurealis Awards process. But in entering a work, you undertake to supply one copy of the work to each of the judges of the relevant category/categories – i.e. you’ll need to supply a minimum of five copies of the work entered.
A list of entries appears on the Aurealis Awards website and is progressively updated during the year. Only formally entered works will be considered for the awards.
Entry forms, AND copies of entered works must be received by the coordinator and relevant judges by midnight EST, Saturday 31 October 2009.
