My book Ice Diaries: an Antarctic Memoir has won the Grand Prize - the Phyllis and Don Munday Award - at the Banff Mountain Film Festival book competition. The Banff film festival is one of the world's largest showcases for films about mountains, mountaineering, climbing and adventure travel. The books entered encompass poetry, photography, fiction and non-fiction. I'm very pleased to have won the award. Many thanks to the festival organisers and the sponsors of the award and to my publisher, ECW in Toronto. More information can be found here:
