Book Contest Rewards Excellence in Independent Publishing

The 2011 National Indie Excellence Awards are open for submissions.

Books published by self-published authors, small press, and independent publishers can be submitted for consideration in the categories of their choice.

Winners and Finalists will be announced nationally in mid May 2011 in time for the Book Expo America.

Top prizes include national book publicity campaigns and the ability to highlight the awards in marketing endeavors.

NIEA recognizes excellence in independent- and self-published books, a category that accounts for a rapidly growing segment of a publishing industry going through almost constant transformation.

For information about the contest including how to submit books, please visit The deadline for entries is March 31, 2011.

"Awards that recognize excellence support more than sales for the independent and self-publishing authors and small presses who win them; they make our entire industry look good. The National Indie Excellence Awards does us all a great service." - Dan Poynter, author of The Self Publishing Manual and 100 other books

"I think contests - and awards - are great, especially for writers. I only won one in my life - but it changed the course of my life. When I was 21 I won a creative writing contest at college. Wow! I was a writer and never looked back." - Barnaby Conrad, Author of 30 books, including Matador, La Fiesta Brava, The Encyclopedia of Bullfighting, and How to Fight a Bull.
