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

The winners will be announced during a ceremony in London in November.

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 open for the Palestine Book Awards 2023 early next year.
