As one of the most prestigious and popular literary events of the year, the awards recognise and promote the excellence of the British book design and production industry by celebrating the best books of the year. These include everything from photographic books, to scholarly, academic and reference books.

Entries for the Awards must be published, designed, typeset, printed or bound by the entrant in the UK. The one exception is the Best British Book category, which can be entered only with books produced entirely in the UK.

The judges will be looking for exceptional design, free of typographical errors, with particular emphasis given to excellent layout and standards of typography.

All books published from 1 July 2017 until 29 June 2018 are eligible for entry in this year’s awards. The deadline for entries is Friday 20 July 2018.

The awards will be presented on Thursday 22 November 2018 at the Montcalm London Marble Arch Hotel. It’s certain to be a memorable night as industry and clients come together to celebrate the best of British book design and production.
