2014 INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER BOOK AWARDS
ONLINE ENTRY FORM


Who May Enter

Independent, university, small press, self-publishers and independent authors throughout North America and overseas publishers who publish books intended for the American market. Authors are welcome to enter their books themselves.


Eligibility

Books that are published with a 2012-2014 copyright or that were released between July 1, 2012 and March 15, 2014 are eligible. Publishers are to select the category and/or region (see category and region list) in which the book(s) should be judged. Regional entry typically refers to the book’s topic and/or setting. If your book has a regional focus, consider this opportunity to increase your chances of winning an award. Regional fee is $55 when added to a National category; when entering a regional category only, you pay the regular fee.


Submission

Entering more than one category is acceptable, but a fee is charged for each category entered. When sending in books, submit one copy of the title per category and per region. For example, when you enter two national categories and one regional category, please send three books. At the end of the online entry process you will be instructed to print out mailing labels and an online registration receipt to send in along with your book(s). Please print out your registration info before leaving the page, or access to the info will be lost. If this does occur, you can print a copy of the payment receipt you receive by email, and send that with your book package.
