The Greek-Australian Cultural League of Melbourne will be holding its Book Prize 2024, with authors across Australia all given the chance to submit their work and win prizes.

Authors can submit books published in 2022 and 2023, written in Greek or English, bilingual or translations, for the opportunity to win a prize.

For bilingual publications, it is up to the author to choose the language of the publication that they wish to submit.

The number of prizes is limited to ten, one in each category and each language, provided there is a book worthy of a prize. The categories include: Poetry, Prose, Theatrical play, History/Study and Book for children.

Any doubt over what category a book is in, the judges will decide.

With only books submitted by their authors or translators accepted, they are requested to use the appropriate application form posted on the GACL website and submit three copies of each book before Friday, July 12.

The award ceremony will be held at the end of the year.

All communication with the GACL will be through the Coordinator Vasiliki Laiou, 0407 542 089, or the President of GACL Cathy Alexopoulos, 0428 968 715,
