New Zealand writers are also able to nominate themselves for these awards, which are valued at  $60,000 for each of the genres.

The nominations are assessed by an expert literary panel and recommendations forwarded to Creative New Zealand for approval, with the award recipients announced at a ceremony in Premier House.
