The best books, the best publishers, the best bookshops
We are excited to invite everyone to our VIRTUAL awards night on 29th June 2020. The coronavirus outbreak may have disrupted many events and public gatherings but we are dedicated to bringing you the best of the best in the book trade. There will be more announcements soon on our social media and website so be sure to keep an eye out!
In 2020, we celebrate 30 years of the awards – or the Nibbies as they are affectionately known. The list of past winners is a roll call of outstanding literary success – from 2019’s Book of the Year, Sally Rooney’s Normal People to authors of the year Lee Child, Philip Pullman, Bill Bryson and Salman Rushdie.
Run by The Bookseller, The British Book Awards are regarded as ‘the BAFTAs of the book trade’.
