The PW Star Watch program, now in its second year, is accepting nominations for its 2016 awards. Done in conjunction with the Frankfurt Book Fair, the program celebrates up-and-coming members of the U.S. publishing community and offers them recognition on a global stage.

“Star Watch was a great success when we launched it last year and we are hoping to highlight even more well-deserving industry stars in 2016,” said PW's editorial director, Jim Milliot.

The panel of judges includes staffers from Publishers Weekly, the Frankfurt Book Fair, and other industry leaders. They will select 50 winners, drawing from those working in positions across the industry. All 50 "stars" will be announced in the September 12 issue of Publishers Weekly. The winners will also be honored in an event in New York City, and at one held during the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Five top honorees will be narrowed down from the 50 winners, to be announced at the PW Star Watch event in September. One Superstar will be also named and awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair (October 19-23).

You can nominate yourself or a colleague.
