2016 Nominations now open

Nominations for the 2016 Voss Literary Prize are now open. Information is available under the nomination heading on this site. Nominations need to be received by COB 4 March, 2016.

The Voss Literary Prize is  dedicated to the memory of Vivian Robert de Vaux Voss (1930-1963), an historian and lover of literature from Emu Park in Central Queensland who studied History and Latin at the University of Sydney and modern languages at the University of Rome. His will stipulated that a literary award be established to reward the best novel from the previous year. The executors of the estate have appointed the Australian University Heads of English, the peak body for the study of English at Australian Universities, to oversee and judge the award.
