Outskirts Press Self-Publishing Authors Impress EVVY Awards Judges—Here Are the 2021 Finalists

Outskirts Press self-publishing authors continually impress the judges at the annual CIPA EVVY Awards and this year is no different. In fact, our authors garnered 23 spots as finalists for the 2021 awards and we couldn’t be prouder!

Now in its 27th year, the EVVY Awards, sponsored by the Colorado Independent Publishers Association (CIPA) and the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation (ELF), recognize the works of independent authors in dozens of book categories.

First-, second- and third-place winners will be revealed and recognized at an awards banquet on Tuesday, Aug. 24, in Denver, Colorado. Details about the broadcast will be announced soon on our blog, Self-Publishing News, and on the CIPA website.

Winning an EVVY Award is a prerequisite to being an Outskirts Press Best Book of the Year finalist, and we announce those three finalists from among all the EVVY winners on our blog shortly after the EVVY Awards.
