Saskatchewan Book Awards Survey 2017

On April 29, 2017, the Saskatchewan Book Awards held its 24th Awards Ceremony to celebrate and promote excellence in Saskatchewan writing and publishing.  We would like to collect some feedback regarding the event and our organization, in order to continue to improve our program.  

* 1. How did you find out about the 24th Saskatchewan Book Awards Ceremony? (Please check all that apply)

* 2. The ticket price for the SBA Ceremony has historically fluctuated quite a bit. In 2017, the early bird ticket price was set at $60 per person, and the regular ticket price at $75. How do you feel about the ticket prices?

* 3. The Master of Ceremonies has been different each year for three years. Would you like to see SBA continue to explore a variety of MCs in the future?

* 4. The award presentations were accompanied by an audio-visual presentation that included the names and cover images of shortlisted titles, along with a voice-over component. How did you feel about the audio-visual presentation?

* 5. A silent auction was offered at the 24th Awards Ceremony, featuring items from local businesses. Did you enjoy the silent auction, and would you like to see it come back in 2018?

* 6. Etienne Fletcher provided a musical interlude after the intermission. In previous years, bands have played background music during the buffet and other bands have played before the intermission. Did you enjoy Etienne Fletcher and would you like to hear more live music during the Ceremony?

* 7. SBA currently presents 14 awards: Book of the Year, First Book, Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Scholarly Writing, Indigenous Peoples' Writing, Regina Book, Saskatoon Book, Children's Literature/Young Adult Literature (presented on alternating years), Publishing, Publishing in Education, Indigenous Peoples' Publishing, and the Prix du livre français, which is offered every other year.  How do you feel about the number and variety of awards SBA offers?

* 8. The SBA Board is currently considering holding a fundraiser in November. What form would you like to see this fundraiser take?

* 9. Thank you very much for taking the time to participate in our survey. Are there any other comments you would like to add?
