Audible.ca will provide each jury member with a complimentary one-year membership to listen to available submissions, as well as titles by other Canadian writers. For all listeners, Audible.ca has a dedicated Scotiabank Giller Prize page for easy discovery of some of Canada’s most exciting literary voices.
The longlist will be presented at an event in St. John’s, Newfoundland in early September, with the shortlist announced later in the month in Toronto, pending Public Health directives related to COVID-19. The winner will be named at a nationally televised black-tie dinner and awards ceremony in Toronto in November.
Submissions are now being accepted. The 2022 submission package, including updated details, can be found at scotiabankgillerprize.ca/about/submissions. The first submission deadline for books published between October 1, 2021, and February 28, 2022, are to be received by February 18, 2022.
About the Prize
The Giller Prize, founded by Jack Rabinovitch in 1994, highlights the very best in Canadian fiction year after year. In 2005, the prize teamed up with Scotiabank who increased the winnings four-fold. The Scotiabank Giller Prize now awards $100,000 annually to the author of the best Canadian novel, short story collection or graphic novel published in English, and $10,000 to each of the finalists. The award is named in honour of the late literary journalist Doris Giller by her husband Toronto businessman Jack Rabinovitch, who passed away in August 2017.
