The shortlist for The London Book Fair International Excellence Awards 2016 has been announced, with China leading the shortlists with five nominations and the USA and Australia not far behind with four each.
The awards, which are held in partnership with the UK Publishers Association (PA), celebrate success in 14 categories, representing the best publishing ambassadors, cutting edge publishing, and ground breaking initiatives in the industry.
We congratulate Sam Elworthy and the team at Auckland University Press for being a finalist for the SSP Scholarly Kitchen Academic and Professional Publisher Award category. Also vying for this award are finalists Higher Education Press (China) and Teseo (Argentina).
Stephen Lotinga, Chief Executive, The UK Publishers Association, said: “These awards are going from strength to strength and demonstrates that excellence in publishing has no geographic boundary. This shortlist shows how, from the USA to China, Argentina to Turkey via France, New Zealand, Poland and of course the UK, there are no shortages of exciting developments in the book and publishing industry.”
