Volunteer as a Colorado Book Awards Judge or Selector

2015 Colorado Book Awards Ceremony

Don't miss this opportunity to celebrate Colorado's literary landscape by participating as a selector or judge for the 2016 Colorado Book Awards. Participating gives you an opportunity to see firsthand what leading members of Colorado's book community are creating.

We are seeking applications from a diverse mix of Colorado readers (scholars, librarians, booksellers, teachers, writers, reviewers, avid readers) from across the state.  We encourage you to apply. There are two parts to the judging process:

Selection of finalists, beginning January 15, 2016 and completed by March 1, 2016. (Categories with large numbers of entries will be sent copies so that Selectors may begin reading as early as November 15, 2015.)

Judging of finalists, beginning March 2016 and completed by April 1, 2016.

All judges and selectors need to complete the online application here.  We are moving the entire process over to submittable.com, so even if you have judged before, please complete the application.  You will onlly have to do this one time.
