The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) are calling for entries to the British Book Design and Production Awards 2023 with two brand new categories for Innovative and Sustainable Books.

As one of the most prestigious and popular literary events of the year, these are the only industry awards to promote and celebrate the excellence and craftsmanship of the British book design and production industry.

All books published between 1 July 2022 and 7 July 2023 are eligible for entry in this year’s awards. There are 18 categories that represent the many various forms books can take. These include everything from Best British Book, Children’s Trade to Sustainable Books categories.

There is also a specific category for aspiring students to enter their work, with the opportunity to win a cheque for £500 as well as a short internship with a leading designer, publisher or printer.

A panel of industry experts from the areas of design, publishing and production will judge all the entries. In addition to the 18 category winners, the book that outshines the rest will win the title of ‘Book of the Year’.

The deadline for entries is Friday 7 July 2023. The awards will be presented at a dazzling ceremony on 24 January 2024 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
