Just announced out of Austin, TX… The 2015 Benjamin Franklin Award Winners. Nap-A-Roo is honored to receive the 2015 IBPA Silver Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Picture Book (0-3). Here is a little more about this prestigious award:
The IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards, which include fifty-five categories recognizing excellence in book editorial and design, are regarded as one of the highest national honors for indie publishers and self-published authors.
The awards are administered by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), with help from over 150 book publishing professionals including librarians, bookstore owners, reviewers, designers, publicity managers, and editors. They are unique in that the entrants receive direct feedback on their titles. The actual judging forms are returned to all participating publishers. The ceremony, held in conjunction with IBPA’s Publishing University (April 10–11, 2015 in Austin, Texas), included a gala dinner where all Gold winners received an engraved trophy marking their achievement.
