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, the standards are exceedingly high; we nominated fewer than 5% of the books we published in 2014. These nominations represent the very best of our publications as determined by Outskirts Press executives and members of the production teams.
The CIPA EVVY Award judges have since reviewed all the submissions received from all eligible authors and publishers to arrive upon the EVVY Award Finalists. Those finalists will all be honored with either 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, or Merit Award within each applicable category at the annual EVVY Awards on August 23rd in Denver, Colorado. Outskirts Press executives will be on hand to accept the awards on behalf of authors not able to appear in person.
Outskirts Press is proud to announce that it has 18 talented finalists being honored, the most among all participating publishers. We’re sure the CIPA judges had to make tough choices to narrow our amazing list of nominees to these 18 finalists. Here are the 2014 Outskirts Press EVVY Finalists in alphabetical order. Congratulations to them all!
As a result of being nominated for the 21st Annual EVVY Awards, these Outskirts Press authors have taken the first step toward winning the coveted Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year Award. Three of the nominees above who subsequently win an EVVY Award during the CIPA banquet this coming August will be selected as Semi-Finalists for our annual Best Book of the Year Award and its $1,500 Grand Prize. Stay tuned.
