Prizes are awarded annually to the two best book-length manuscripts of original poetry submitted in an open competition. Each manuscript submitted will be considered for both prizes.

The winners will be announced and the prizes awarded in February of each calendar year, with publishing contracts to follow soon thereafter.

The submission deadline is September 15.
          The UW Press has published more than fifty-five collections of poetry since the inception of the Brittingham Prize in 1985.
