The Janet Frame Memorial award runs biennially and is for $3,000. It is offered by the NZSA, thanks to a gift from the Janet Frame Literary Trust, to support a mid-career or established writer. This prestigious award is open to authors of poetry, literary or imaginative fiction.

In 2012 the award went to Dunedin novelist, memoirist, and poet Diane Brown.

The Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship is an annual Fellowship generously donated by Peter Beatson and provides the successful applicant with $7,000 and the choice of a one month stay in the Dianne Beatson Residency at Foxton Beach.
