The 2014 London Book Festival has issued a call for entries to its annual awards honoring the best of international publishing.
The 2014 London Book Festival will consider books in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and Italian in the competition. The works may be published, self-published or independent publisher non-fiction, fiction, children’s books, poetry, art/photography, young adult, how-to, wild card (anything goes!), business, science fiction, history, romance, spiritual/religous, and biography/autobiography/
A panel of judges will determine the winners based on the following criteria:
1) The story-telling ability of the author;
2) The potential of the work to win wider recognition from the international publishing community.
Grand prize for the 2014 London Book Festival Author of the Year is a $1500 appearance fee in U.S. funds and a flight from your city of entry to our awards ceremony, to be held in January, 2015 in London.
