Book Submission Form

Sorry, book submissions for the 2021 Leacock Medal are not accepted after December 31, 2020

We only accept submissions from August 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020

Submission Notes

Starting with the award for 2021, we are introducing a new way of accepting book submissions.  Instead of providing a fillable PDF submission form, we are asking authors and publishers to enter the submission details on-line.

The steps in this process are as follows:

When entering the data:

Please fill in as much information as you can, beyond those items marked as essential.  This means full addresses.

If your book has two authors, please precede the second author's name with ' & ',  E.g. 'Samuel Smith & Jenny Jones'.  The ambersand (&) is important in separating the names.


If you do not have a publisher or publisher's contact, please put "Self Published" in both the Publisher and Contact Name boxes, and leave the other publisher contact details blank.

If you make a mistake...

and accidentally submit an entry with incorrect information on it, please email Bette Walker at or the webmaster at
