Each year, the FAPA President’s Book Awards program recognizes book publishing excellence and creativity in design, content, and production for North American authors and publishers. Librarians, book industry professionals, and educators from Florida and other states will judge content, theme, layout, and cover design elements.
FAPA awards gold, silver, and bronze medals to finalists in each category. Winners are announced by email and listed on the FAPA website in early July. All category winners receive their medal, a digital certificate, and 10 medal decals at the FAPA President’s Book Awards Banquet. FAPA issues a press release announcing the winners that can be sent to the media and used on an author’s website, blog, and on social media.
For 2018, eligible books may be entered in forty-three categories. There are also two separate cover design categories. Please see the 2018 Submission Guidelines below. Discounts are available for Early Bird Submissions. The Early Bird Submissions deadline is February 28, 2018. The final submission deadline is May 21, 2018.
