2021 Entry Eligibility
2021 Rules for Entry
A diverse panel of interdisciplinary judges will review each submission. Judges will be selected from industry professionals with book design and production expertise. Entries will be judged on format, layout, typography, jacket, materials, and production quality. Judges are presented with uniform criteria for evaluating each category.
Judges reserve the right to select the Judges’ Choice award at their sole discretion.
A pool of finalist entries for each of the categories will be determined, from which three levels of awards may be chosen (Gold, Silver, and Bronze).
Not all categories are guaranteed to have a Gold, Silver, and Bronze winner.
Publishers will be notified after completion of the final judging. Winning entries may be displayed at regional and national trade shows and other events throughout the year by PubWest.
