Nominations from BISG members are now open for the 2014 Book Industry Study Group Annual Industry Awards. The awards honor individuals and companies whose "contributions and outstanding achievements in all areas of the publishing ecosystem best reflect BISG's mission of facilitating member-sourced solutions for the benefit of the entire industry."
Nominations are now being accepted, through July 18, for the Industry Innovation Award and the Industry Champion Award. A jury consisting of industry professionals will review the nominations and select short lists and final winners. The jury will also select the recipient of the Lifetime Service Award and, with BISG staff, will nominate candidates and select the Most Valuable BISG Volunteer.
Award short lists will be announced in August, and the winners will be presented at the annual members meeting on September 19 in New York City.
