Do you support independent book publishing? If the answer is "yes," we invite you to become a sponsor of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

In return for sponsoring the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, you and your organization will receive widespread recognition as supporters of indie publishing. Your partnership with the Next Generation Indie Book Awards will give you the opportunity to have a prestigious award named after you, to receive national publicity, and to reach thousands of authors and organizations involved in independent book publishing.

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards is the largest not-for-profit awards program honoring exceptional independently published books. Referred to in the media as the "Sundance Film Festival" of the publishing world, it offers cash prizes ranging from $100 to $1,500, trophies, and medals to winners and finalists in 70 different categories.

Winners and finalists are announced each year during BookExpo America at a gala event held at a landmark location in New York City and in a catalog distributed to thousands of people at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards was founded by the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group in cooperation with Marilyn Allen and Allen O'Shea Literary Agency. Judges for the awards include editors, literary agents, book reviewers, writing teachers, publishing executives, and best-selling authors.

While many of the judges have worked with successful independent publishers, others have worked with major publishing houses such as Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Penguin Books, Bantam Books, Dell Publishing (part of the Random House Group), and Avon Books, among others.

We invite you to join our team as a sponsor of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Three sponsorship opportunities, along with the benefits received for each package can be emailed to you. If you are interested in making a more substantial contribution and receiving greater recognition, we can tailor a sponsorship program to meet your needs. (Sponsorship of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards may be tax deductible as a business expense.)

Please email us at or contact Beth Werner at (570) 686-1214 to sponsor the Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
