I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

We're thrilled to be nominated for the Independent Publishers Guild Alison Morrison Diversity Award for the sixth year running!

The shortlists feature a total of 47 nominations—the most in the 14 years of the Awards—and showcase the work of 32 different companies and four individuals. They range right across the publishing spectrum and combine some of the UK’s longest established publishing names with some of the newest. The winners of all the Awards will be revealed in a special online presentation on Tuesday 22 September 2020. Read the full shortlist here.

IPG chief executive Bridget Shine says: “It’s been a very challenging year for everyone in publishing, so it is wonderful to be able to pause to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the UK’s independent sector. These shortlists show the diversity and vibrancy of the IPG’s community, which is packed with resourceful, agile and ambitious businesses and individuals. While it’s sad to be unable to celebrate with them in person in 2020, we’re really looking forward to honouring their success in September.”

“Carcanet was pushing diversity for a long time before it became a concern for many others in the industry,” said the judges.

Congratulations to all our fellow indie presses on the list - we look forward to virtually celebrating with you on September 22nd!
