In 2015, WFNB partnered with The Fiddlehead to administer New Brunswick’s first English-language book awards program. We believe New Brunswick writers are some of Canada’s finest and are happy to have the chance to recognize them.

The NB Book Awards offers $500 prizes in each of the following categories: fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and children’s literature.


The Alice Kitts Memorial Prize for Excellence in Children’s Literature is a new annual prize awarded to a children’s picture book, in recognition of both the author and illustrator.

The NB Book Awards competition is open to traditionally published and self-published authors who have lived in the province for three of the last five years, including the award year.

For details, applications and submission guidelines, please visit the New Brunswick Book Awards website.
