First prize is $10,000; four additional prizes are $3,000 each.                                                

Published works include but are not limited to scholarly monographs, creative works (e.g., novels and anthologies of poetry), exhibition catalogues, textbooks, and edited collections.  Current University of Texas at Austin faculty and staff are eligible to compete for these awards.  Nominated books must have been published between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2009.  Books in any language are eligible.
