IPNE launches curation to float everyone's boat

15 Jun 2016 1:00 PM | Charlotte Pierce (Administrator)

Starting in 2016, IPNE exhibits at most of our book shows will be curated. Through this process, our intent is to raise the overall quality of books that readers and industry professionals can discover through the public face of IPNE.

This process is intended to enhance the reputation of the organization as a whole and its members individually. In designing the program, we have researched best practices at similar professional organizations.

Publishers with books that are not accepted for exhibits will be offered resources and mentoring sessions designed to bring their books up to exhibit standards.

Books may be accepted for exhibit if they meet one or more of the following guidelines (full policy linked at IPNE.org):

  • IPNE Award winners or finalists.
  • Winners or finalists of other established awards programs.
  • Books accepted to previous shows under current curation guidelines.
  • Books on established trade organization publication lists.
  • Publisher has completed, signed, and submitted our curation checklist.
  • Completed IPNE profile, including book metadata and cover images.

If you are unsure whether your book qualifies, please send us a copy of the book at least two months prior to the event at which you wish to exhibit and contact IPNE for guidance. Books that do not meet guidelines will be returned and exhibit fees refunded. Full guidelines are posted at IPNE.org. Final exhibit qualification approval rests with the IPNE Board of Directors.
