Goodreads believes bloggers are an integral part of that great conversation that everyone loves: “Have you read anything good lately?” It’s time to honor your incredible work.
Goodreads partnered with the Association of American Publishers to create the Independent Book Blogger Awards as well-deserved recognition for the increasingly important role bloggers play in today’s publishing world. They’re eager to hear from all types of blogs, big and small. The only key qualification is that you write passionately about books!
For more details on criteria for entry, rules, and background on the judging process, please see the Contest Terms.
Enter your blog in one of four categories: Adult Fiction, Adult Nonfiction, Young Adult and Children’s, or Publishing Industry. When voting closes, the top 15 blogs in each category will become finalists. Winners will be selected from among the finalists by a panel of industry judges. Each of the four category winners will receive a pass to BookExpo America (June 5-7, 2012) with airfare and hotel accommodation in New York City.
Don’t forget to get the word out to your readers when voting begins on Tuesday, April 10, 2012!
