PW Calls for Bookstore & Rep of the Year Nominations
Publishers Weekly is seeking nominations for its 19th annual PW Bookstore and PW Sales Rep of the Year awards to be presented this spring at BookExpo America in New York City.
Nominees for PW Bookstore of the Year should operate a professional storefront retail bookstore in the U.S. and should excel in buying and vendor relations, marketing, handselling, customer care, community involvement, management-employee relations, merchandising, and business operations. Candidates cannot nominate themselves.
The PW Sales Rep of the Year award is open to both phone and in-person sales representatives, who booksellers can rely on for information, guidance, and support. Booksellers should include a story or provide an example of their rep’s commitment to excellence.
Nominations, including the nominator’s name, phone number, and industry affiliation, should be sent to Donna Paz Kaufman at PWawards@publishersweekly.com or via fax to (904) 261-6742. The deadline for nominations is Monday, February 7, at 8:00 a.m. EST.
The nomination will be part of a packet of materials used by the judges who select this year’s award winners.
Award winners will be profiled in the pre-BEA issue of Publishers Weekly magazine.
