IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards
It's that time of year again! Have you mailed in your books for the prestigious IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award™ program, which includes fifty-five categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design? If not, there's still time.
The initial Call for Entries deadline is September 30, 2017. Don't delay! The IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award™ program is 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. The judging forms are returned to all publishers.
Publishers of print books with a copyright date of 2017 may enter the competition. Each entry is judged by three independent judges. Each judge will have either a design focus or an editorial focus. Most entries are assigned two editorial judges and one design judge. Some entries, however, like those in the “Interior Design” category, will be assigned only design judges and some entries, like those in the “Best New Voice” category, will be assigned only editorial judges.
To assist the judges and ensure they have enough time to review each book, there are two entry deadlines:
