The 2014 Paris Book Festival late registration deadline arrives May 3 for its annual awards honoring the best of international publishing. All materials must be in our hands at close of business on that date.
The 2014 Paris Book Festival will consider non-fiction, fiction, biography/autobiography, children’s books, compilations/anthologies, young adult, how-to, e-books, cookbooks, audio/spoken word, wild card (anything goes), photography/art, poetry, unpublished, spiritual, and romance works. There is no date of publication deadline and entries can be in French or English.
Our grand prize for the 2014 Paris Book Festival is $1500 cash and a flight to Paris for our gala awards ceremony on May 27, 2014.
Submitted works will be judged by a panel of industry experts using the following criteria:
1) General excellence and the author’s passion for telling a good story. 2) The potential of the work to reach a wider audience.
