PW Bookstore and Sales Rep of the YearNominations deadline: Jan. 8
Issue: May 2019 (TBD)
Authors, booksellers, publishers, distributors, and others with ties to the book industry are invited to nominate their favorite bookstores and sales representatives for the 2019 Bookstore and Sales Rep of the Year Awards. (Please note that candidates cannot nominate themselves, nor can family members nominate them.)
Finalists will be named in January at Winter Institute in Albuquerque. Winners will receive a write-up in Publishers Weekly in May 2019 and will be honored at an awards ceremony in New York City.
Bookstore of the Year: PW will honor an independently owned bricks-and-mortar bookstore in the U.S. that has been in operation for at least four years. In your nomination, please note what makes the bookstore special and provide contact information, including your name and industry affiliation. Bookstores that have previously received the award cannot be nominated, nor can sister stores of bookstores that have previously won.
Sales Rep of the Year: We welcome nominations for outstanding telephone and house reps as well as independent sales representatives. Please include an example of the rep’s commitment to excellence, as well as contact information, including your name and industry affiliation. Sales representatives can only win the award once.
Please email nominations for PW 2019 Bookstore of the Year and PW 2019 Sales Representative of the year to Judith Rosen at PWawards@publishersweekly.com.
