The UK Book Blog Awards at the London Book Fair will introduce a new category for 2019 - Book Podcast of the Year.
As well as the new award, bloggers, social media influencers, members of the publishing industry, and the general public are invited to contribute nominations for the three returning categories: Book Blogger of the Year, Bookstagrammer of the Year and BookTuber of the Year.
Once the shortlist has been revealed, a panel of judges will select one winner in each category, who will be honoured at a special awards ceremony at The London Book Fair.
This year’s judging panel will include events manager at Waterstones Gower Street Rosie Beaumont-Thomas, Andersen Press PR and brand director Paul Black and The Kindness Method (Bluebird) author Shahroo Izadi.
The London Book Fair marketing manager Helen Clifford said: “Social media is a vital part of the publishing landscape, and the addition of a podcast category award highlights the growing number of ways in which influencers help promote authors and their titles. We are thrilled to recognise the important link between the influencer community and publishing once again with the UK Book Blog Awards @ LBF.”
The awards are open to any UK based book blogger, YouTuber, podcaster or Instagrammer. To put forward a nomination, or to nominate your own blog/podcast/Instagram account/YouTube channel visit: www.londonbookfair.co.uk/UKBookBlogAwards
