Submissions are open! The application has never been easier.
- It’s all online.
- You don’t need a hard copy — just send a PDF of the published book AND/OR the PDF sent to you by the publisher plus your Word/RTF file of the index.
- The cost is only $30.
- We provide feedback for up to three runners-up.
No restriction on the subject matter or genre — textbooks, cookbooks, guidebooks, memoirs, art books, how-to books, travel books, all books — it’s your index we will be looking at.
Show us how you creatively overcame challenges, resulting in an outstanding, well-structured, easy-to-navigate, clear and comprehensive guide for all of its users.
Give us a challenge. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Maybe you’ll get the prize (which won’t happen if you don’t apply). And if not, you’re very likely to get expert confidential feedback. That’s worth a lot.
This year you can submit indexes published in 2020 and 2021. If you are a Canadian indexer or a Canadian resident, this is the time to do it. If you are not a Canadian citizen or resident, you may submit an index if you were a member of ISC/SCI at the time you wrote the index.
The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2022. Please see the awards page for guidelines, criteria, and the submission form.
