The First Annual Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award

Here's a self-pub contest we came across on Twitter—a great opportunity for indie authors looking to increase their digital footprint. By extension, the book bloggers network is a great resource to check out.

The Book Bloggers' Novel of the Year Award

In association with The Folio Society & The Write Reads

BBNYA, the first annual Book Bloggers Novel of the Year Award, is a competition for indie authors (both self-published and published by small indie presses).

The contest will be judged by a large and diverse panel of book bloggers from all around the world. 

There are some great prizes for authors placing up to tenth. Here's what awaits the first-place winner:

  • A yet to be revealed BBNYA 2020 trophy
  • An Ultimate Blog Tour from The Write Reads
  • A unique BBNYA 2020 badge designed by Jenniely
  • A 100 pound sterling Folio Society voucher
  • A 100 euro cash prize
