The Independent Publisher Book Awards contest is now accepting entries for 2019, from independent authors and publishers with books intended for an English-speaking audience.
The Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) were conceived in 1996 as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the independent publishing industry, and are open to independent authors and publishers worldwide who produce books intended for an English speaking audience.
The awards are intended to bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and self-published titles published each year. Since the inaugural contest in 1996, over 5,000 books have received “IPPY” Awards, and all the recognition, credibility, and increased sales that a book award can bring.
Books released between January 1, 2017 and February 23, 2019, or with 2017-2019 copyrights are eligible. Entry fee is $75 per title, per category (until the Sept. 1 early-bird deadline) with a $55 ‘add-on’ fee for regional/ebook entries.
The IPPY Awards reward those who exhibit the courage, innovation, and creativity to bring about change in the world of publishing. Independent spirit and expertise comes from publishers of all sizes and budgets and books are judged with that in mind. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to winners in national subject categories, regional categories, and e-book categories. Winners are celebrated at a ceremony on the eve of BookExpo.
