The Next Generation Indie Book Awards is a literary awards program that recognizes and honors authors and publishers of exceptional independently published books in 70 different categories.[1][2] "Indies" include small presses, larger independent publishers, university presses, e-book publishers, and self-published authors.[3]

History[edit]

The not-for-profit [4] awards program was founded in 2007 by Catherine Goulet and is presented by the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group in cooperation with co-founder Marilyn Allen of Allen O’Shea Literary Agency. The judges are professionals from the book publishing industry, including literary agents, editors, publishing executives, book reviewers, writing teachers, and authors.[5][6][7]

Cash prizes and medals are awarded to winners and finalists ranging from $100 to $1,500,[8] grand prize winners are also awarded a trophy,[9] and the top books in each category are reviewed by literary agents for possible representation. The Next Generation Indie Book Awards are announced each year during BookExpo America in a catalog distributed to BookExpo attendees.[10] Winners and Finalists are honored at a reception during BookExpo America. The awards ceremonies are held at landmark locations in New York City including the Plaza Hotel [11][12] and the Harvard Club of New York.[13] In 2016 the ceremony was held at the Newberry Library in Chicago.[14]

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards program has been said to be the 'Sundance' of the book publishing world.[15][16]
