Key Information

We are extremely proud to run the An Post Irish Book Awards, an annual celebration that brings together the entire literary community to celebrate the very best in Irish writing. Now in our 15th year, the awards have expanded to include eighteen categories, spanning all genres. Every year over 100,000 votes are cast, with 600+ lucky guests attending a star-studded ceremony at the Convention Centre Dublin. Recent winners & attendees include Sally Rooney, Graham Norton, Vicky Phelan, Dara Ó Briain, Andrea Corr and G. R. R. Martin, ensuring the annual RTÉ One highlights show is a must-watch on the Irish cultural calendar.
 
The An Post Irish Book Awards have a full roster of category sponsors and media partners, alongside our headline sponsors An Post, ensuring saturation coverage of the awards on the high street, online, in the press, magazines, and across TV & Radio. With mainstream advertising campaigns across Ireland, the An Post Irish Book Awards have transcended the Arts & Cultural sector, to become one of the Ireland’s most important annual events. 
 
The burgeoning success of the awards programme was compounded in 2020 with a triple success at the European Sponsorship Awards, including An Post’s Overall Sponsorship of the Year Award, the first time in history that a non-sporting event had won the coveted award.
