W.O. Mitchell Literary Prize

The award was established after W.O. Mitchell's death in Calgary in 1997, and was first given out in 1998. It is awarded annually to a writer who has both produced an outstanding body of work and served as a mentor to other authors. The prize is worth $15,000 and is administered by the Writer's Development Trust and a prize committee. The rules of the prize stipulate that every third year the winner must be francophone.
