AWARD SHOWCASE

The BMS are committed to promoting excellence in book trade marketing.  We have developed and administer two main Award schemes for the BMS membership: the Seasonal Awards, which reward the best marketing campaigns every four months in five categories: adults, children’s, non-fiction above £2.5k, multi-title, and guerilla award for campaigns under £2.5k. The winners of each season are then entered as part of the BMS Annual Awards which will next be awarded in 2019 (dates to be announced in the Summer).

These Awards are designed to acknowledge the work of marketing professionals within the book industry. The judges – independent marketing and book trade experts– are particularly looking for a professional approach in the following three areas:

  • Innovation and creativity
  • Ability to reach and engage the target audience
  • A good return on investment

Please note that entry to the Awards is only available to BMS members.

The Book Marketing Society Campaign Awards are judged by a rotating panel of industry experts from the world of bookselling, marketing, media and other expert parties.
