Publishers Weekly has opened the call for nominations for the 2021 PW Bookstore of the Year and PW Sales Rep of the Year awards.
Authors, booksellers, publishers, distributors, and others with ties to the book industry are invited to nominate their favorite bookstores and sales representatives for the Bookstore and Sales Rep of the Year Awards. (Candidates cannot nominate themselves, nor can family members nominate them.) The winners will be announced at the inaugural U.S. Book Show in May. They will be featured in a story in Publishers Weekly following the announcement and will be honored at an awards ceremony in the fall.
Bookstore of the Year: PW will honor an independently owned bricks-and-mortar bookstore in the U.S. that has been in operation for at least four years. In your nomination, please note what makes the bookstore special and provide contact information, including your name and industry affiliation. Bookstores that have previously received an award cannot be considered for the 2021 award, nor can their sister stores.
Sales Rep of the Year: We welcome nominations for outstanding telephone and house reps as well as independent sales representatives. Please include an example of the rep’s commitment to excellence, as well as contact information, including your name and industry affiliation. Past winners cannot be considered for the 2021 award.
Email nominations for PW 2021 Bookstore and Sales Representative of the Year awards to Judith Rosen at PWawards@publishersweekly.com by March 15.
