Book Buyers Best Award
As a book publicist, I can assure you they absolutely do matter! One client won several awards and was contacted by two movie producers about her Young Adult Sci-Fi Fantasy Fiction novel. Another one of my clients won the prestigious Los Angeles Book Festival award. That then led to a flurry of media interest, which subsequently led to a major New York agent deciding to represent the book and pitch it to all the major publishing houses. This author, needless to say, was happy he decided to enter.

Become an award-winning author! Book awards grab the attention of bookstores, publishers, libraries and readers, which can translate into increased sales. If you place in our contest you will be able to add your Readers' Favorite award seal to your book and all other marketing materials as well as identify your book as an "award-winning book" and you as an "award-winning author."We accept manuscripts, published and unpublished books, eBooks, audiobooks, comic books, poetry books and short stories in 150+ genres. We do not have a word count restriction or a publication date requirement, which means it does not matter when or if your book was published. We are an international competition, but your work must be in English. We receive thousands of entries from all over the world. Because of these large submission numbers, we are able to break down our contest into 150+ genres, and each genre is judged separately, ensuring you only compete against books of your specific genre for a fairer and more accurate competition. We receive submissions from independent authors, small publishers, and publishing giants such as Random House, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster, with contestants that range from the first-time, self-published author to New York Times bestsellers like J.A. Jance, James Rollins, and #1 best-selling author Daniel Silva, as well as celebrity authors like Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty), Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek) and Henry Winkler (Happy Days).
Readers' Favorite is the fastest growing book review and award contest site on the Internet. We have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and are very proud to be fully accredited by the BBB (A+ rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies.
We have 4 books with Readers' Favorite and one of them won an award in your contest last year. We attended your awards ceremony in Miami and it was fabulous! We wanted to let you know that our award has helped enormously in marketing the book, and the award sticker on our cover has dramatically helped sales. We sell many books directly to buyers and they are constantly noticing and asking about the award sticker. We greatly appreciate your organization and will be entering more books in the years to come.
Over the years, we have caught the eye of industry leaders who have graciously offered to support our contest by providing their services to our contestants. Our contestants now have a chance for the opportunity to have their book made into a movie or TV show, to be published by a multi award-winning publisher, to be represented by a renowned publicist, and to be represented by a renowned literary agent. All of these opportunities are included free of charge with your entry into our book award contest.
Dete Meserve entered her book "Good Sam" in our contest and attended our awards ceremony in Miami. She was so impressed with the caliber of our award-winning authors and their writing that she has agreed to evaluate 10 of our contest award-winners each year for possible film or TV production by her company! This is an incredible opportunity for 10 lucky authors. The chances of getting a book read by a studio like Wind Dancer Films through normal channels is so incredibly minute, that it is simply not possible for 99.9 percent of authors today. That is why this offer from Dete Meserve and Wind Dancer Films is so extraordinary. The needs of a TV and film production company are very dynamic and change constantly to reflect the tastes of audiences. Consequently, we cannot predict the genre and types of stories Wind Dancer Films will be looking for each year. In late August, when we are finalizing our winners, they will tell us what genres and types of stories they are currently looking for. At that time we will select the 10 best books from our contest that meet their criteria and contact the authors on September 1st, which is also when we announce our final contest winners and results.

The Readers' Favorite Illustration Award recognizes books with quality illustrations in two ways: Award for Best Cover Illustration and Award for Best Illustrated Book. All illustration types and genres are welcome. Whether your book is a children's picture book or an Non-Fiction Memoir with an illustrated cover, if your artwork is original, created by you or an artist you hired, you can enter your book to compete for this additional award. The Illustration Award is a separate award, which may be won by itself or in conjunction with a standard Gold, Silver, Bronze, Honorable mention or Finalist award in your primary contest category.
The Illustration Award is part of our regular Award Contest and follows the same time line, which means winners will be announced on September 1st. If you would like to compete for this award, you will need to compete in the regular Award Contest as well by selecting at least one category for your book to compete in, then you will be able to add the Illustration Award ($65) option to your entry. You will be able to compete for the Book Cover Award or the Illustrated Book Award or both for the one payment of $65. You can upload your book for our regular contest and mail a copy for the Illustration Award if you like. Mailing instructions will be in your contest entry confirmation email.
NOTE: If no book in a genre meets Mark's standards for the Illustration Award, no award will be given in that genre. Because of the potential for more than one book to receive the same winning score, more than one award may be given in each genre.
