If you have a book with a publication date of 2015, 2016, or 2017, you are eligible to enter the 4th Annual IPNE Book Awards. In addition, we offer a category open to perennial sellers that continue to be promoted and sell well, year after year. For members, the fee to enter is just $45 per title (one category), and $25 per additional category. 

Enter Your Book Today

The submissions period for those wishing to enter the Book Awards contest will open on March 27, 2017 and end on May 19, 2017. So hurry and avoid the last minute rush and shipping mishaps.

Award certificates are given to a finalist and one winner in each category, at an awards ceremony currently scheduled for early November 2017. Each book is judged by a panel of librarians with category expertise and other qualified reviewers selected by the IPNE.

The IPNE Book Awards continue to be a favorite of IPNE members and other indie publishers. Winning a book award or being named a finalist in one not only brings a sense of personal validation, but also provides countless opportunities for promoting and marketing your book. You'll be an "award-winning" author!

Reach Out to Give & Get Help!

At IPNE, help is what we're about, and  we are an organization run by members (on a volunteer basis) for members. We want to support you in making your book publishing efforts a success, and we need your involvement, large or small, to make our programs run smoothly. 

So, if you'd like to join our Book Awards curation team, send us an email and let us know your availability. Our events will run best with you on board!
