OUR OWN VOICE announces a call for nominees for the 2010 Global Filipino Literary Award (GFLA) in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. Nominations may be submitted by authors, publishers and booksellers. The deadline is on July 28, 2010 and these are nominations only for books by Filipino authors published in 2008 and 2009.
