The Age invites entries for 2011 Book of the Year Awards

29th March 2011

Australian newspaper the Age has invited entries for its 2011 Book of the Year Awards.

These are split into the categories of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, with each of the three winners being awarded a prize of AUD 10,000 (GBP 6,400).

An additional AUD 10,000 will be given to the author of the overall Book of the Year.

Any book written by a living Australian and published between June 1st 2010 and May 31st 2011 is eligible for the prizes.

Children's books, plays, anthologies, guides, dictionaries, encyclopaedias and books that are comprised mainly of illustrations will not be accepted by the newspaper's judging panel.

The closing date for entries is Friday June 3rd and the winners of the awards are to be announced during Melbourne Writers' Festival at the Age Book of the Year event.

Last year, Alex Miller won the fiction category with his book Lovesong, beating five other shortlisted writers.

Miller is also the author of a number of other popular titles, including Conditions of Faith.

The winner of the non-fiction prize was Kate Howarth for Ten Hail Marys and Jennifer Maiden won the poetry award for Pirate Rain.
