The Next Generation Indie Book Awards program began four years ago, and every year we have been thrilled with the entries. But this year surpassed all expectations. There were close to 50% more entries than last year and throughout the judging process, I heard continuous feedback from our judges about how impressed they were with the outstanding quality, the excellence in writing, and the creativity of books entered.
All of us at Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group are grateful to be part of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the largest not-for-profit book awards program in the world, which continues to honor and recognize so many talented individuals within the independent book publishing industry. This year’s cash prizes total more than $12,000 with over 240 awards to be handed out to the winning authors and publishers.
With a significant increase in the number of entries, it was essential for us to increase the size of our judging team this year. The judges included seasoned book editors (including many who have worked with major publishing houses such as Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Penguin Books, Bantam Books, Dell Publishing and Avon Books) as well as designers, book buyers, agents, book reviewers, publishing executives, writing professors, best-selling authors, and other industry leaders.
