After an autologous interview with the previous winners, I have identified the Top 10 "Very Canadian" Writing Awards and Recognitions using the following criteria:
A "Very Canadian" Award or Recogntion must
- be slightly awkward and apologetic;
- suggest that the recipient is a work-in-progress; and
- carry no monetary award or hint that a career in writing is possible.
