The Trailblazer Awards open for submissions today, recognising publishing professionals aged under 30 who are demonstrating innovation and ambition in the book industry.
Now in their fourth year, the awards are run by The London Book Fair, in partnership with the Publishers Association, supported by the Society of Young Publishers and BookBrunch. The awards are open to anyone under the age of 30 (as of 12 March 2019).
Five winners will be selected by a judging panel and announced at a ceremony in February hosted by The London Book Fair, together with SYP, BookBrunch and the PA.
Winners will receive VIP entry to The London Book Fair, access to The Club at the Ivy’s LBF pop-up, an invitation to join the PA and LBF at a Book Society dinner, an invitation to a dedicated SYP networking event at LBF, tickets to the LBF International Excellence Awards and more. The winners will also be celebrated at the Fair itself.
