Entries for the Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Book on British Columbia can be written or edited by any Canadian (s) but the subject matter must pertain to British Columbia.

The author need not be formally affiliated with a university or college, etc.  An educational mandate or perspective can be sufficient to merit the term scholarly if the quality of the writing and research is sufficiently high.

Books can be deemed eligible only once, on a calendar-year basis. The award is judged by a panel selected by Pacific BookWorld News Society. A shortlist of three titles is selected prior to a presentation ceremony hosted by UBC Library.

There is no entry fee.
Publishers simply send three copies of each eligible title, prior to December 1, to:
Basil Stuart-Stubbs Prize
c/o Pacific BookWorld News Society
926 West 15th Avenue,
Vancouver BC V5Z 1R9

In the event that an eligible title is not published until December, simply send an email to , apprising organizers of a forthcoming submission.
