IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards, which include over fifty categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design, are regarded as one of the highest national honors for indie publishers and self-published authors.

Held in conjunction with IBPA’s Publishing University 2015 (April 10–11, 2015 in Austin, Texas), the 2015 award ceremony is a gala dinner where all Gold winners receive an engraved trophy marking their achievement.

MORE ABOUT THE AWARDS: The Benjamin Franklin Awards are administered by IBPA with help from over 150 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.

The general registration fee is $30 per person. Attendees of IBPA’s Publishing University 2015 receive a complimentary ticket as part of their Publishing University registration.

In addition, all award finalists will receive two complimentary tickets to the program. Finalists will be announced in March 2015. Contact IBPA’s COO, Terry Nathan, at terry@ibpa-online.org for details.
