IBPA Announces Benjamin Franklin Awards Winners
More than 250 gathered in the ballroom of the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City on May 24 to celebrate the 152 finalists and winners of the 22nd Annual Benjamin Franklin Awards, chosen by 150 hard-working judges from 1300 entries in 50 categories.
Top experts in the book industry from all over the U.S., including librarians, booksellers and design experts, judged each and every entry. In keeping with IBPA’s educational mission, all entrants receive a written critique with advice on how to improve their publications as well as kudos for the good work produced.
Honoring excellence in publishing annually since 1988, this year, the Benjamin Franklin Awards recognized publishers as large as the Getty Institute and Kent State University Press, and as small as Butterfly Sky Press and Health Advocate Publishing.
The Independent Book Publishers Association, the largest not-for-profit association of publishers in the United States, is pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Awards. A complete listing of finalists and winners may be found here on the IBPA website.
