The Award

The shortlisted titles for the 2024 KOBZAR™ Book Award have been announced and preparations for the Award Ceremony are underway. For more on the shortlisted books click here.

Presented biennially, the $25,000 KOBZAR™ Book Award recognizes outstanding contributions to Canadian literary arts by authors who write on a topic with a tangible connection to the experiences of Ukrainian Canadians. As the Ukrainian community celebrates 130 years in Canada, the Ukrainian stories are limitless. KOBZAR™ Book Award entries can weave through fascinating moments in world history, acquaint us with the lives of both one and the many, introduce us to the challenges of different generations and waves of immigration. Ultimately, they paint a picture of a people that proudly continues to shape the Canada we know today.

Distinctive to this Award is monetary recognition for both the winner and the winner’s publisher.

We hope you can join us in a celebration of our storytellers!
