On Tuesday, November 4th, the finalists will be honoured and a winner announced at a gala black tie dinner and awards ceremony to be held at Torontos Four Seasons Hotel.


As part of a focused campaign to bring Canadian literature to a wider reading audience, The Giller Prize has teamed up with the Toronto Public Library (TPL) to launch a pilot project involving this years shortlisted books, set to begin Tuesday, October 14th, 2003.


The TPL with over 30 million actual and virtual visitors each yearwill carry ballot boxes in 15 branches across the city and will also run the promotion through their website. On the ballots, contest participants will be asked to predict the winner of this year's Giller Prize. The draw will take place on November 5. The first five winning entries will receive the entire 2003 shortlist library.
