Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards

POSTED BY prbythebook ON February 18, 2013

There’s a new opportunity for getting your work recognized if its available in digital formats. The IBPA announced the the launch of the new Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards. Below you will find out more about how the new awards program works. Once you get the details, don’t waste another minute! Enter here!

The Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards (BFDA) will honor achievement in electronic book publishing by individuals and organizations of all sizes, including publishers, developers, designers, manufacturers, institutions, and technology leaders.

With the help of judges representing all segments of the book industry, the BFDA will serve as a natural companion to IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Awards for print, now in its third decade of recognizing publishing excellence. A unique feature of both Awards is that every entrant receives direct feedback from the judges regarding product improvement.

The BFDA is a rolling awards program–submissions will be welcomed year round and entries will be judged against a standard of excellence in four categories: E-books, Enhanced E-books, Books as Apps and New Technologies. “A rolling awards process without calendar constraints mirrors the “real-time” world of digital publishing and allows immediate access to IBPA’s unique brand of publishing education,” as our President, Florrie Binford Kichler explains. “Entrants will benefit from direct constructive criticism from each judge.”

IBPA will be presenting gold and silver award of excellence honorees with a suite of promotional opportunities, including announcements on IBPA’s website and all social media outlets, in the monthly magazine, the Independent, to all industry publications and more. Honorees will also be featured at an event at IBPA’s annual Publishing University , to be held April 26-27 in Chicago.

GUEST POST: Readers aren’t what they used to be

Submitted by Arnie Yew, co-founder of The Readerie Since the old rules of publishing are being rewritten anyway, why not do some rewriting of our own? If there’s one thing we’ve learned from talking and working with authors and publishers, it’s tough out there and it isn’t getting any easier. Sounds like the perfect time […]
