Our Supporters

Core funding for the 2024 Atlantic Book Awards and Festival

comes from the Canada Book Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage, with additional funding assistance from Nova Scotia Gaming’s Support4Culture program and Friesens Corporation. The nonprofit Atlantic Book Awards Society is grateful to our sponsors and supporters and wishes to extend particular thanks to the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association, Halifax Public Libraries, and the Writer’s Federation of Nova Scotia. Thank you also to the juries who worked hard to select this year’s shortlists and winners!

Every year,

a committed group of volunteers stages this series of events to celebrate and draw attention to Atlantic Canadian writers, illustrators, and book publishers. We are a non-profit organization and registered charity, the Atlantic Book Awards Society. To continue to do this important work, we need the assistance of charitable donors and of business and corporate sponsors who share our passion for writing and reading. Literacy is of vital importance for all Atlantic Canadians. By supporting the Atlantic Book Awards and Festival, you will be helping to foster a strong, vibrant literary community in Atlantic Canada, encouraging the authors of tomorrow by celebrating the authors of today.


While we are currently partnering

with Atlantic booksellers and publishers and have strong support from the book publishing community and library network, we need additional corporate support so that we can continue to offer free events in schools, bookstores, and libraries throughout the region.

Please help make the Atlantic Book Awards and Festival a memorable and successful event. With your support, we can continue to grow this vital celebration of Atlantic books and bookmakers.
