Submissions for the 2022 Colorado Book Awards will open on Monday, September 15, 2021 for books published in 2021 and the last quarter of 2020 with a submission deadline of January 7, 2022. There is no nomination process. Authors and publishers may submit eligible titles online through Submittable.

To be eligible for a Colorado Book Award, a primary contributor to the book must be a Colorado writer, editor, illustrator, or photographer. Current Colorado residents are eligible, as are individuals engaged in ongoing literary work in the state and authors whose personal history, identity, and literary work reflect a strong Colorado influence. Independently published work is welcome. All entries must have a copyright page and an ISBN, and we strongly recommend all entries be professionally edited.
