Re: Deadline for Nominations for Toshi Book Prize extended to April 30, 2015

Just to be clear, we accept, and indeed encourage, self-nominations for the Toshihide Numata Book Prize in Buddhism. All we need is a copy of the book, along with a short letter to the effect that the book is being submitted for consideration for the Toshi Prize.

Some publishers have been better than others in submitting eligible books for the prize. If you are an author of a scholarly book on Buddhism with a copyright date of 2014, you might want to check that your publisher has submitted the book, or alternatively, to submit the book yourself.
