Authors and publishers throughout North America and overseas publishers who publish English-language books appropriate for the North American market may enter. Books with 2015-2017 copyrights, or that were released between October 2015 and July 2017 are eligible. The exception is our Living Now Evergreen categories, which accept books published since the year 2000.
Entry Fees are per title, per category. Enter one book in one category for a single entry fee; enter one book in two categories, pay two entry fees. (Sorry, no discounts for multiple title or category entries.) Final deadline is July 1, 2017 with "early-bird" entry fees available to those who register early, according to the following schedule:
Judging will be based on content, originality, design, and production quality, with emphasis on innovation and creativity. Our judging panel includes experts from the fields of editing, design, reviewing, bookselling and library. Three to five medalists per category will be named on about August 21st, 2017.
Gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded in each category, along with certificates, award seals and marketing materials.
Submission for more than one category is acceptable. Submit TWO copies of the title per category. For example, when you enter a title into two categories, please send us four books. All books entered become the physical property of the Living Now Awards and will eventually be donated to local libraries and charities.
Please include completed entry form and check/credit card info, or online registration receipt in the same package as the books. All entries must be posted online or postmarked by July 1, 2017.
We will confirm your entry via email, and send judging updates and results announcements by email as well. Please inform us of any email address changes or additional contacts you'd like added to our contest update list.
