Book Awards: Overview
The Independent Publisher Book Awards (the “IPPYs”) are are intended to bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and self-published titles published each year. The awards are open to all members of the independent publishing industry, and to authors and publishers worldwide who produce books written in English and intended for the North American market. Since the inaugural contest in 1996, over 4,500 books have received IPPY Awards, and all the recognition, credibility, and increased sales that a book award can bring. Independent spirit and expertise comes from publishers of all sizes and budgets, and books are judged with that in mind.
Entry for the 2013 IPPY Awards is now closed, judging is underway, and we plan to announce results on April 30th. The 2013 IPPY Awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, May 29, in New York. See a photo album from last year's event.

The Axiom Awards recognize books in a wide range of categories, from Leadership and Personal Finance to Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy. The list of categories includes books intended for professionals (International Business/Globalization); for general consumers (Retirement Planning); books about business people (Memoir/Biography); and books meant to motivate and entertain (Business Fable).
