The London Book Fair (LBF) International Excellence Awards, in partnership with the Publishers Association (The PA), has launched the hunt for the best international book trade journalist, and the deadline for entries is Thursday, 10 January 2019.
This new award will recognize the best international journalist writing for specialist publishing/book trade newspapers, magazines or websites. This is for book and publishing trade journalists only and recognizes the vital role they play in international publishing. Any book trade journalist based outside of the UK, who has been writing about the book trade for more than two years can enter. Specialist journalists on general interest publications such as national newspapers can not enter for this award, and collaborative entries will be considered.
Book trade journalists based outside of the UK can enter/be nominated for the award via the LBF website by 10 January 2019.
The awards celebrate publishing success in 16 other categories, representing the best publishing ambassadors, innovative publishing, and ground-breaking initiatives in the industry. Awards are given to companies and individuals across the world and across sectors, with categories including academic and professional publisher, rights professional, literary agent, and library of the year.
The LBF International Excellence Awards ceremony will be an invitation-only evening event and will take place on 12 March 2019 on the first day of LBF 2019.
