The Danger Awards 2023
Now in their sixth year, the Danger Awards continue to honour books featuring Australia as a setting for stories about crime and justice. At BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival in November 2023, three awards will be presented: one for crime fiction, one for crime non-fiction and thanks to the generous sponsorship of OverDrive Australia, for the first time a People’s Choice award will be presented covering both categories
The winners will each receive $1000 In prize money, a Danger Award trophy and be invited to speak at BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival 2023.
We are now calling for submissions of both crime fiction and non-fiction books that explore and shed light on crime and justice issues in Australia. We are looking to reward crime writing that has its finger on the pulse of the Australian experience, both past and present.
