IBPA, the parent organization of BAIPA, is seeking entries for the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards, regarded as one of the highest national honors in independent and self-publishing. The Awards are unique in that entrants receive direct feedback on their submissions, with the actual judging forms returned to all publishers. There are 56 categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design.
Publishers of print books with a copyright date of 2019 may enter the current competition. To assist the judges and ensure they have enough time to review each book, there are two deadlines for entry: the first was on September 30, 2019/ the second is on December 15, 2019. Find details on the IBPA website.
