BookExpo Announce Independent Blog Awards

The AAP and GoodReads are co-sponsoring a blogging competition in advance of the Book Expo conference.
If you’re a blogger who loves books, that passion might get you far: all the way to New York and the publishing industry’s premier annual event, with free travel and an all-access pass.

Nominations are now open for the new Independent Book Blogger Awards, a free online contest recognizing bloggers unaffiliated with/not compensated by a publishing company who write primarily about books and the industry. Four winners, chosen by the public and a judging panel, will attend BookExpo America in June with free airfare and hotel accommodations and a pass to the three-day global gathering.

The contest is co-produced by the Association of American Publishers Trade Division member organizations and Goodreads, the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations.
The Independent Book Blogger Awards calendar:
  • Nominations are now open until Monday, April 9, 11:59 PM
  • Readers’ voting runs from Tuesday, April 10, 12:01 AM until Monday, April 23, 11:59 PM
  • A shortlist of finalists will be announced the week of May 1, with expert panel judging to follow
  • Winners will be announced the week of May 7
All nominations and voting will take place through Goodreads on its special Independent Book Blogger Awards section.
