As a winner or finalist you can highlight your award on your marketing materials. You can also both download the seal to print on your book and order stickers to put on each book you have already printed. Award stickers will be available for purchase as well as Certificates.
The Indie Excellence® Winners & Finalists recognize the books that demonstrate an indefinable synergy of elements that makes for overall excellence.
The 2015 Winners and Finalists will be announced on May 15, 2015 and you can order stickers and certificates at that time.
We do not publish the names of the judges to respect their privacy.
Indie Excellence® Refund Policy
All sales are final. There are no refunds. Only appropriate submissions will be eligible to enter the contest. Indie Excellence® therefore reserves the right to refuse any material that it finds inappropriate, not reflecting contest rules, or reflecting negatively upon the contest or its rules.
Notifications and Deadlines of Winners and Finalists
We will notify each entry of the package's receipt via e-mail and will announce the winning entries on our web site (www.indieexcellence.com) . Because of the high volume of entries, we can only respond to e-mail inquiries.
Winners and Finalists in each category will be notified by e-mail and on the web site.
We will notify each entry of the package's receipt via e-mail and will announce the winning entries on our web site after the judging is complete and after the date for submissions is closed for the year. Because of the high volume of entries, it could take up to two weeks to send you the notification that we received your book. Thank you.
There are no hard and fast rules about how a contest is to designate its winners. Different contests have different designations. We have structured our contest so that only one book per category may be designated “Winner.”
However, often there is more than one book in a category that truly stands out, and we believe these deserve recognition also. While it makes the job of our judges harder in some ways, we are dedicated to celebrating excellence in self-published books. So we created the category of “Finalist.”
Books that are recognized as Finalists are in every way outstanding. The difference between the Winner and Finalist books are often so minute that the call might have gone either way.
The bottom line is that being recognized as a Finalist is a high honor and something about which any author can and should be justifiably proud.
Readers recognize that Finalist books are worthy of their attention and their book-buying dollars.
