ABOUT THE AWARDS

The "IPPY" Awards were conceived as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the independent publishing industry, and are open to authors and publishers worldwide who produce books written in English and appropriate for the North American market.

We define "independent" as:

  1. Independently owned and operated
  2. Operated by a foundation or university
  3. Long-time independents that became incorporated but operate autonomously and publish fewer than 50 titles a year.

The world's largest book awards competition offers:

  • 88 subject categories in General categories – NEW THIS YEAR: Audiobook categories in both Fiction & Non-Fiction
  • Regional awards for Best Regional Fiction and Best Regional Non-Fiction for eight U.S. regions, two Canadian regions, Australia/New Zealand/Pacific Rim, and Europe
  • E-Book Awards with fiction, non-fiction, children's, regional and design categories
  • Winners receive entry to the award ceremony and celebration party during BookExpo America, medals, stickers, certificates, and national publicity in a press release, as well as social media exposure.
