FAPA President’s Book AwardsFlorida Authors & Publishers Association

Recognizing book publishing excellence and creativity in design, content, and production

Each year the Florida Authors and Publishers Association sponsors the FAPA President’s Book Awards, which recognizes book publishing excellence and creativity in design, content, and production for North American authors and publishers. Books by North American authors or publishers in 45 categories may be nominated.  Librarians, book industry professionals, and educators judge content, theme, layout, and cover design elements. FAPA awards one Gold Medal, up to two Silver Medals, and one Bronze Medal in each category.

The finalists will know they qualified for a 2017 FAPA Book Award, but we will not announce which books earned a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal until the FAPA President’s Book Awards Banquet that will be held Saturday evening, August 5, 2017, after the close of the FAPA Annual Conference.  We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting industry event.
