2010 National Indie Excellence Award Judging Complete: The Biggest Challenge Yet!
The National Indie Excellence Awards contest shines a spotlight on books that demonstrate excellence. National Indie Excellence Award judges are professionals from all aspects of the independent book industry, from book cover and interior designers and professional copywriters to publishers, writers, editors and more. They select award winners and finalists based on overall excellence of presentation. This year’s contest had them more than challenged to make final selections, said sponsor Ellen Reid.
"Our judges agreed that never before have so many independent and self-published books demonstrated such a high level of excellence. In recognition of this happy development, we’re going to be expanding our categories to allow for more winners in next year’s contest. If our message of excellence is being heeded, then we’re going to celebrate those who demonstrate it!” Reid commented. The NIEA emblem on a cover lets people know this is a book that meets the highest standards of independent publishing.”
This year the site (www.indieexcellence.com) will include a video trailer showing the covers of the award winners only. In addition, Ellen will award special prizes, chosen from the list of Winners & Finalists. These prizes are designed to assist 5 authors in promoting and marketing their books.
NIEA is sponsored by Ellen Reid, a long-time champion of self-independent publishing. She is also a pioneer Book Shepherd and author. She believes that, just as the Sundance Film Festival celebrates excellence in indie films, when more indie books are created with excellence, it’s good for the entire industry.
