Jump to: navigation, search

The AML Awards are given annually by the Association for Mormon Letters to the best work "by, for, and about Mormons." They are juried awards, chosen by a panel of judges. Citations for many of the awards can be found on the AML website [1]

The award categories vary from year to year depending on what the AML decides is worthy of honor. Beginning in 2013, the AML began creating a shortlist in certain categories. Beginning in 2015, all wins were preceded by announced shortlists.
