Sunburst Award Now Accepting E-books

Toronto, Ontario (November 7, 2014) The Sunburst Award Committee announced today that they have moved into the digital age. Starting with the 2015 awards, they will accept e-book versions of submissions as well as print ones.

“It will help publishers to submit, especially smaller ones. Postage costs have increased dramatically over the last several years and print books have a cost of their own.” says Peter Halasz, one of the founders of the awards. “We also expect to reduce our own costs since we mail as many as 120 - 130 books annually to each of five jurors.”
