Is your book a winner? It's time to let the world know! Registration is now open for the 2017 IPNE Book Awards!


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 two finalists and one winner in each category, at an awards ceremony currently scheduled for October 7, 2017. Each book is judged by a 3-judge panel of librarians with category expertise and other qualified reviewers selected by 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 provides countless opportunities for promoting and marketing your book.
