PubWest’s Innovator Award celebrates a PubWest-affiliated individual who has worked to expand and strengthen book publishing in one or more of these ways in the past five years:

  • Reimagining what publishing can or should be
  • Supporting creative design, marketing, or editorial work
  • Exceptional efforts to develop new skills that expand publishing into the future

Nominations are open to individuals who have worked in book publishing – including, but not limited to, work as publishers, authors, booksellers, sales representatives, editors, designers or a combination of the above. Any member of PubWest may make a nomination, and it is up to them whether they want to inform their nominee in advance.

The primary question to be answered in a nomination should be, “What is unique in this person’s recent contributions to publishing?” Please include information about their efforts – successes and failures, measurable metrics, publishing community awareness/feedback, and their career experiences.

2024 Nominations are now closed.

The Awards committee will review all nominations, and may request additional supporting materials from the nominator. The Awards committee will make its recommendations for the Innovator recipient to the PubWest Board of Directors, and the recipient will be celebrated at the PubWest Conference 2024.
