Palestine Book Awards 2018 - Submissions Closed

31 May 2018

We are very pleased to announce that we have had another successful year with 44 books being submitted for consideration for the Palestine Book Awards 2018.

We wish all authors and publishers the very best of luck with their entries. The five judges will announce the books they have shortlisted for the Awards in the coming weeks, please keep an eye on the website for more details.

The winners will then be announced at a prestigious Awards evening in London this November. The invitation-only event will see a hundred dignitaries, authors, publishers and activists come together for an evening of literature.

No more nominations are being accepted for this year’s Awards and anyone wishing to submit a new publication is requested to wait until entries are being accepted for the Palestine Book Awards 2019.

Submissions for our Palestine Book Awards 2019 will open in early 2019 where we encourage publishers to submit all books published between June 2018 and May 2019 on the subject of Palestine.
