For the past four decades, the Arizona Authors Association Annual Literary Contest has presented awards for outstanding books, short stories, and poetry. We do not judge a book by its author's popularity or by any criteria other than excellence in the work itself. Whether your book is unknown or a New York Times best seller, it has an equal shot at winning. Our prizes not only include the recognition and bragging rights associated with a win in a respectable literary contest, but also, monetary prizes, publication in our magazine, and nominations for various industry awards.
