Florida Nonfiction

The Phillip and Dana Zimmerman Gold Medal Prize for Florida Nonfiction provides a $500 prize for the Gold Medal Winner of this category and serves as a tribute to the donor’s parents, Phillip and Dana Zimmerman, recognizing their deep roots in Florida and their love of Florida’s rich history and culture.

Florida Nonfiction includes Florida history, biography, autobiography, or memoir. Authors need not be current Florida residents; book's content must primarily focus on Florida.
