The Evvy Awards are widely acclaimed for recognizing excellence in independently published books. Offered every year, these awards are sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers’ Association, and judged by a panel of professionals on a qualitative scale of merit in nineteen different categories.
Each year, Outskirts Press officially nominates a small percentage of the books published during the year for submission to the Evvy Awards. Since a nomination is the first step toward receiving the Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award, this year the standards were exceedingly high; we nominated just 2% of the books we published in 2011. These nominations represent the very best of our publications as determined by Outskirts Press executives and members of the production teams. Potential nominees are notified via email in the fall. There is no obligation to accept the nomination; just being recognized is a great accomplishment.
Outskirts Press official nominees and winners receive additional exposure of their books in featured Outskirts Press marketing channels, including our blog, social media networks, and in our email newsletters. The winners are announced during an awards ceremony hosted by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association on May 17, 2012.
