The Largest Literary Prize in Canada

Hosted by Rick Mercer, folks can tune in to CBC on November 13th at 9 PM ET to watch the Scotiabank Giller Prize broadcast, where the winner will be announced.

From OOTD to GRWM videos, tastemakers and fashionistas are often asked “Who are you wearing?” – but have they ever been asked “Who are you reading?”. Trends aside, this fashion statement is a capsule wardrobe must-have…

The largest literary prize in Canada, the Scotiabank Giller Prize, has launched a lookbook to remind us that a must-have statement piece has always been a good book.

The 2023 Scotiabank Giller Prize Lookbook finds the intersection between literature and fashion, styling this year’s shortlisted books in an editorial collection of photos highlighting the titles as an essential part of your outfit.

With the historic Fairmont Royal York as the backdrop, photography duo Saty & Pratha were the perfect pair to capture the Scotiabank Giller Prize’s effort to relaunch with an elevated look and feel to celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. The “Book Lookbook” features an array of diverse faces with a modern flair while capturing the essence of the Canadian literature landscape, and tapping into “literary chic” and a collegiate aesthetic that is stylish and modern yet remains timeless and classic.
