Every year, New Zealanders are invited to nominate their choice of an outstanding writer who has made a significant contribution to New Zealand literature in the genres of non-fiction, poetry and fiction. New Zealand writers are also able to nominate themselves for these awards.
The nominations are assessed by an expert literary panel and recommendations forwarded to Creative New Zealand for approval, with the award recipients announced in a ceremony at Premier House. 
In 2011, Dame Fiona Kidman gained the award for Fiction; Peter Bland for Poetry and James Belich for Non-Fiction.
