Call for Ockhams Judges

By New Zealand Book Awards Trust | Posted: Wednesday June 1, 2022

Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday 29 June

Having only recently announced the results of the judges’ deliberations in the 2022 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards, we are now calling for expressions of interest from readers with a deep knowledge of local literature who would like to be considered as judges of the 2023 Ockhams.

Applications are invited from members of the public with relevant experience, and from the literature community. Suitable candidates may be authors, former publishers, editors, event organisers, scholars, reviewers, critics, booksellers, or librarians.

The New Zealand Book Awards Trust Te Ohu Tiaki i Te Rau Hiringa particularly welcomes expressions of interest from Māori applicants.

Potential judges can express interest directly or be nominated. More information and expressions of interest forms can be downloaded from our website or supplied on request by emailing the Trust manager. Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday 29 June.
