The goal of the Excellence in Publishing Awards is to recognize the best in Catholic publishing in ten (10) categories—Biography, Children's Books, General Interest, Inspirational, Prayer and Spirituality, Resources in Liturgy, Resources for Ministry, Scripture, Spanish, and Theology. In addition, a "Book of the Year” will be named from among the first place finishers in these ten categories.
The basic information that you will need in order to submit your 2016 titles is below and at the ACP website.
Cost: $195 per entry. Publishers may submit multiple books.
Publishers who are Foundation Members at the time of submission will receive one free submission for every paid submission. Foundation Members should use the promotional code "FDNAward" when you checkout.
If you have any questions about your membership status, please contact Therese Brown.
Deadline for Submission: Books must be submitted to the ACP by January 27, 2017.
