The jury, comprised of Beverley Chalmers, author, editor and educator Joseph Kertes, and Indigenous writer and activist Lee Maracle, chose the winners from 59 entries submitted.

The Vine Awards were established in 2004 to honour the best Canadian Jewish writers and Canadian authors who deal with Jewish subjects — they continued the tradition of the Canadian Jewish Book Awards, from which they were renamed.

In addition to this year’s four categories, an additional prize for poetry will be awarded in 2019 (this award is presented every three years). The awards are funded by the Lillian and Norman Glowinsky Family Foundation to honour Lillian’s parents, Helen and Stan Vine, who were passionate about the arts.
