Nominations will be judged by a panel of judges and the award will be presented at the 2003 Book Industry Awards in Christchurch.

The questionnaire is available by e-mailing the NZSA office. Email: or writing to 'Authors Choice Award', PO Box 67-013, Mount Eden, Auckland 1030. Deadline for nominations is April 4th 2003.
