The organisers of the inaugural Business Book Awards, which celebrates the best UK business authors and publishers, are inviting submissions with a deadline of December 31 2017. The awards will celebrate the best of business books published between January 1 and December 31 2017, and the winners will be announced on March 16 2018.
The founder of the awards is Lucy McCarraher, author of 11 books, and co-founder and Managing Editor of Rethink Press. Lucy McCarraher said, “Every business author should enter for these awards. The high profile ambassadors, the well qualified judges and the integrity of the judging process means the Business Book Awards carry high kudos in the business world and further afield. Short-listed and winning authors will be able to take advantage of the publicity and promotion.
“The Business Book Awards welcomes every good book and every method of publication. I want to recognise business book publishing and authorship in all its forms, and bring the best authors to public recognition. This is a truly egalitarian initiative, we welcome those who self-publish and have a broad outlook.”
The short list will be announced on Wednesday January 17 2018 and the six winners will be revealed at the grand final event on Friday March 16 2018 at the Grange City Hotel, London. One of the winning authors will be awarded the overall Business Book of the Year 2018.
