Announcements & News
Welcome to a new award year!
The site has been reset and memberships can now be renewed.
The 2019 eligibility lists (for works published in 2018) are now open.
If you would like a non-voting account (for example if you work for a book publisher and would like to submit works by authors published by your company) please contact us to request an ID and we will create one for you. Non-voting accounts are free and do not require a CSFFA membership, however they can only submit to the eligibility lists, not nominate or vote.
It is December. The 2018 voting cycle is over and a new year is about to begin.
To prepare for the new year, prixaurorawards.ca will be going through its annual hibernation. We will put the site into a primarily read-only state while we set up the forms system (removing the 2018 forms, cloning them, and preparing the 2019 forms, etc.).
You will still be able to visit the site, see the various informational areas, and access archival and historical information. Logins may be temporarily disabled as the new year rolls over into the next so that we can reset membership status. You may even occasionally see the site maintenance message.
Membership for the 2018 voting cycle is closed. If you are an existing member, you will need to wait until the site reopens January 13, 2019 to renew your membership for 2019. You can still contact us to request a non-voting membership if you wish to only submit works for the eligibility lists (but not nominate or vote).
Have a lovely holiday, whatever you celebrate, and we’ll see you in 2019!
Our web host migration has been successful and we are on our new platform.
The site may experience some downtime this weekend and during the upcoming week due to the hosting migration from GoDaddy to GreenGeeks.
We’ll put up another news post when the migration is complete.
