The Blogger's

Book Prize 2022

Powered by NB Magazine

Celebrating outstanding reads and book bloggers’ passion

Deadline for submissions: 10th February 2022

The Blogger’s Book Prize celebrates the fundamental relationship between the book industry and the book bloggers who champion literature and share their wonderful recommendations with millions of readers across the country. Powered by NB Magazine, the Blogger’s Book Prize highlights inclusive, influential, and underrepresented books that have been published over the past year. Calling on book bloggers invaluable knowledge at every stage of the process, the Blogger’s Book Prize is fast becoming the jewel in the crown of the book blogging community. 

Publishers are encouraged to submit fiction books published in 2021 –  we are looking for inclusive and addictive books that prompt book club discussions; books that are written to be enjoyed and devoured. Shortlisted books will best reflect the views of readers, book bloggers, reading groups, book clubs and all those who, in another tough year, have continuously supported and promoted bookshops and the publishing industry.

A pool of book bloggers will review all submissions in order to create a shortlist of six books, each of which will be represented by an individual blogger. These six bloggers will champion their titles, encouraging social engagement and conversation through a social media campaign, before the public have the chance to vote for their favourite book.

The shortlisted books and their blogger will be presented to an independent judging panel composed of industry professionals and well-established book bloggers, who will judge each title. Taking into consideration the public vote and each title’s social media campaign, the judging panel will determine the winner of The Bloggers Book Prize 2022.

The winning book will be awarded a cash prize of £1000.
