North American Book Awards

Because discoverability is one of the biggest challenges in the world of publishing today—with over 19 million books available on Amazon—outstanding books need opportunities for recognition and to reach new readers.

At North American Book Awards, we showcase great books and create a standard of excellence for readers, bookstore buyers, organizations, book clubs, and everyone who loves books. Entries may be nominated or submitted by authors, publishers, publicists, designers, illustrators, editors, and especially valued readers who wish to nominate their favorite work.

Entries are accepted year-round. If a book reaches a Gold, Silver, or Bronze standard, the author will be awarded that status and the book and author’s name will be listed for all time on our website as an Award Recipient. The author will receive a NABA seal and the right to add their status to all profiles including Amazon, Goodreads, and other distribution channels.

The North American Book Awards is open to entries and nominations for high-quality books with a copyright/publication date between 2017 and 2022.

2022 entry deadline: November 1, 2022—Winners announced December 31, 2022
