Through SELF-e, Library Journal is constantly searching for noteworthy indie ebooks. In addition to the national SELF-e Select Collections, we are taking it up a notch by presenting awards for highly distinguished ebooks.
Our annual contest, Library Journal’s Indie Ebook Awards, recognizes authors who submit the best ebooks in their respective genres. The 2016 contest included mystery, romance, science fiction, YA and fantasy genres and was judged by Library Journal, as well as librarians all across America. Find out who won the 2016 genre awards.
Winners in each category receive $1,000 and their books are reviewed in the “Best Books” issue of the Library Journal print magazine.
The 2016 BCALA Self-Publishing Literary Awards, celebrating accomplished African American indie authors, is accepting submissions until February 17, 2017. Submit your work of fiction or poetry for consideration here. Each genre winner will receive $500.00, a formal recognition at the Black Caucus of ALA Literary Awards and a BCALA Literary Award Seal.
We will be announcing new contest relationships soon. Contact us if you are interested in working with us to run a writing contest through your organization. With the help of our technology, running an ebook contest is easier than ever!
