Submissions Now Open For The 2019 An Post Irish Book Awards
Posted on July 5, 2019 by alice. More news
Submissions are now open for the 2019 An Post Irish Book Awards. The over-riding motivation behind the awards is to celebrate the extraordinary quality of Irish writing, to help bring the best books to a wider readership annually, and to promote an industry under intense competitive pressures. Exclusively Irish, inclusive in every other sense, the Irish Book Awards brings together the entire literary community – readers, authors, booksellers, publishers and librarians – like no other awards.
To be eligible the book must have been published within the current awards year, i.e. between November 1st 2018 to 31st October 2019. The author must be Irish by birth, citizenship or long-term residence . The book must be original, i.e. neither a reprint nor a translation or adaptation of a previously-published book.
Submissions close – 31st August
Shortlist launch – 24th October in the GPO at 6.45pm
An Post Irish Book Awards 2019 – 20th of November in The Convention Centre Dublin
