IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards, which include ﬁfty-two categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design, are regarded as one of the highest national honors for independent publishers.
The awards are administered with help from over 160 book publishing professionals including librarians, bookstore owners, reviewers, designers, publicity managers, and editors. The Benjamin Franklin Awards are unique in that the entrants receive direct feedback on their titles. The actual judging forms are returned to all participating publishers.
In addition, Gold winners receive an engraved crystal trophy. Gold and Silver winners receive award certificates along with gold or silver stickers. All winners are announced to the major trade journals and media.
All award finalists receive two complimentary tickets to the event. Finalists were emailed a special Coupon Code to use when registering above in order to claim their complimentary tickets. Contact IBPA’s COO, Terry Nathan, at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
