Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

Carcanet shortlisted for IPG Diversity Award for a fourth time

Friday, 9 Feb 2018

No Text We're thrilled to be nominated for the Independent Publishers Guild Alison Morrison Diversity Award for the fourth year running!

Drawn up by panels of experts from the largest number of nominations ever received in the 12 years of the IPG Independent Publishing Awards, the categories feature a total of 42 nominations, taking in 26 different publishers, two other publishing organisations and five individuals.

The winners of the 12 Awards will be revealed at a Gala Dinner during the IPG’s Annual Spring Conference on Thursday 8 March 2018. A final Award, for the prestigious title of Ingram Content Group Independent Publisher of the Year, will be selected from a shortlist made up of the winners of the five Publisher of the Year categories.

“Diversity has been a big thing in publishing recently, but Carcanet has been promoting it for a very long time,” the judges said. “It’s not added on to the business—it’s fundamental.”

IPG chief executive Bridget Shine says: “Each year we say it: competition for the IPG Independent Publishing Awards is tougher than ever. We were blown away by the quantity and quality of the entries from IPG members, which gave our judges an extraordinarily tough job. The shortlists they have produced reveal the incredible diversity and dynamism of independent publishing in 2018, and our only regret is that many more superb entrants could not be included. We can’t wait to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the independent publishing community with members in March.”

Congratulations to all our fellow indie publishers on the shortlist.
