First Call for Entries

It pays to enter early! We’re offering a $79 Early Bird discount (normally $99) for books registered on or before June 30th. Check this off your list now. Choose a second (or third) category for the same book and the fee drops to $59 for each additional category.

The Foreword INDIES are awarded to independent presses, university presses, and self-published authors whose books not only meet our editorial standards, but also thoroughly impress our librarian and bookseller judges.

Winners in each category are showcased in the many platforms of Foreword Reviews, including the print edition and digital newsletters. Press releases listing finalists and winners will be sent to Foreword Reviews‘s 10,000+ list of media and industry professionals. Winners will also be promoted on social media. Those books named Editor’s Choice win cash prizes.

Plus, by entering your book into the awards program, you’ll be eligible to receive a complimentary one-year subscription to Foreword Reviews—six print issues regularly priced at $29.95.
