Contests, prizes and awards

If you have an annual prize you’d like us to add to the list, contact info@poets.ca with the website and information. The National Magazine Awards website has great seasonal roundups of magazine-run prizes, and Literistic is a subscription service that will send you calls for submissions and contests a month before their deadline. We recommend checking out these resources to supplement our list! For youth prizes, check out our main resources page.
