carte blanche is a co-organizer of two annual prizes:

3Macs carte blanche Prize
This prize is awarded annually at the Quebec Writers’ Federation Gala in November to recognize the best narrative work published in carte blanche in that calendar year. Successful contributions can be a short story, a poem, a comic or a creative nonfiction piece. This prize is generously sponsored by 3Macs, a division of Raymond James.

carte blanche CNFC/creative nonfiction contest
This prize is the result of a partnership between the Creative Nonfiction Collective Society (CNFC) and carte blanche. It is awarded at the CNFC annual conference, and is open to all previously unpublished creative nonfiction submitted by Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The prize is sponsored by the University of King’s College.
