Joseph Henry Jackson, James Duval Phelan, and Mary Tanenbaum Literary Awards[edit]

Three literary awards of $2,000 each to encourage "emerging artists not yet established in the genre who are either California-born or currently residing in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo County, for an unpublished manuscript-in-progress." The awards are sponsored by The San Francisco Foundation and administered by Intersection for the Arts.

James D. Phelan Award

The James D. Phelan Award is intended to encourage young writers of an unpublished manuscript that is completed or in-progress. All applicants must be between 20 and 35 years of age. There is no entry fee required to apply for this award. Applicants must have been born in the state of California but need not be current residents. The unpublished work-in-progress submitted may be fiction (novel or short stories), nonfictional prose, poetry, graphic novel, or drama. Plays may be submitted in standard script format. A James D. Phelan Award is also given in photography and printmaking. Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, California, administers the printmaking awards. The award was founded in the 1930s by a bequest in the will of civic leader and former Senator James D. Phelan.

Joseph Henry Jackson Award

The Joseph Henry Jackson Award is a literary award offered annually to promising young California writers. There is no entry fee to apply for this award. Recipients receive $2000. The award is a memorial to Joseph Henry Jackson, longtime literary editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. Jackson was described as "the greatest bookman west if the Mississippi," and, as Anthony Boucher noted, the only disputed part of the description was its geographical limitation. The award was established after his death in 1955.[9] The award is intended to encourage young writers of an unpublished manuscript that is completed or in-progress. All applicants must, therefore, be between 20 and 35 years of age. Applicants must be residents of and currently living in northern California (anywhere in California north of the line dividing Monterery County from San Luis Obispo County) or the state of Nevada for three consecutive years immediately prior to the March 31 contest deadline. The unpublished work-in-progress submitted may be fiction (novel or short stories), nonfictional prose, graphic novel, or poetry.

Mary Tanenbaum Award for Nonfiction

The Mary Tanenbaum Award is a literary award offered annually to promising elder writers. The award is intended to encourage elder writers of an unpublished manuscript that is completed or in-progress. All applicants must, therefore, be over 50 years of age and this must be their first professionally published poem. Originally established in memory of Joseph Henry Jackson, the Mary Tanenbaum Award recognizes outstanding nonfictional prose. Applicants must be residents of and currently living in the United States for three consecutive years immediately prior to the contest deadline.

James Duval Phelan Literary Award[edit]

Established by the trust of James D. Phelan (1861-1930) to "recognize the achievements of California-born artists in a variety of disciplines." According to the San Francisco Foundation, the Phelan award is now given in conjunction with the Murphy and Cadogan Awards for MFA students and also through the Bay Area Documentary Fund.
