An open notebook saying The Book Bloggers' Novel of the Year Award 2020

The First Annual Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award!

in association with

BBNYA, the first annual Book Bloggers Novel of the Year Award, is a competition for indie authors (both self-published and published by small indie presses).

The contest will be judged by a large and diverse panel of book bloggers from all around the world. The panel will put the books through several rounds of judging based off a wide set of criteria. As each round goes by, we will announce the results - until finally we arrive at our ten finalists. After further intensive reviewing, we will choose our favorite and declare it the ‘’Book Bloggers Novel of the Year’’!

Our goal is to give underappreciated, lesser known authors a chance to make themselves known without being overshadowed by the big names, but also show the world the power of book bloggers!

The winning author will receive a whole bunch of prizes - including ones sponsored by our big-name supporter The Folio Society - the makers of the most beautiful books in the world. As well as the most important prize: The honour, recognition, and vindication of being our winner and the endorsement of book bloggers. You can read all about the prizes here!

The prizes are not just for authors as the bloggers taking part in our judging panel will also be in the running for loads of amazing prizes and rewards, including additional Folio Society vouchers and a badge you can put on your blog stating you were a panel member of the BBNYA 2020!

ALL prizes associated with BBNYA 2020, for both authors and bloggers, will be fully international in every way.
