Janette Oke Award

The Janette Oke Award is presented biannually in honour of founding and  lifetime member, Janette Oke. In 2016, Inscribe members and executive wished to honour her faith, writing career, and Christian commitment which have impacted millions around the world and thus the first biannual Janette Oke Award was established. 

The award will be given to a current member who shows a strong Christian commitment, desire to impact society with family and Christlike values in their work, belongs to Inscribe, and is innovative or brave in their chosen genre. The committee is not looking for a similar theme or genre but a sense of commitment, conviction and a strong desire to persevere in their field.

  • will be awarded every second year (as donated funds permit)
  • Is open to any current members (or those who renew their membership at the time of submitting their award application.)  
  • the award is a minimum of $250 dollars cash, depending on donations received specifically for award.
  • The deadline is midnight on September 1 of the year it is presented.
