A leader and veteran of publishing award contests, The National Indie Excellence® Awards are open to recent English language books in print from self and independent publishers.

The National Indie Excellence® Awards celebrate independent publishing as a strong and proud sector of the industry. Recognizing excellence in all aspects of the final presentation, NIEA champions self-publishers and the independent presses who go the “extra mile” to produce the highest quality books. Established in 2007, NIEA’s entrants are carefully judged by experts stemming from various facets of the book industry profession including publishers, writers, editors, and designers.
Winners and finalists are determined on a basis of superior written matter coupled with excellent presentation in every facet of the final published product.

Sponsorship awards and monetary prizes are selected from the overall group of Winners and Finalists.
