PANZ Book Design Awards

PANZ Book Design Awards entries are now open       

The Publishers Association of New Zealand has developed the PANZ Book Design Awards to promote excellence in and provide recognition for the best book design in New Zealand. It is now inviting publishers to submit entries for the 2023 Awards.

As the publisher is the only one who can submit an entry, as a self-publisher, this is you!

Entries are open to any New Zealand book, including educational, children’s, general fiction and non-fiction, published between 1 January and 31 December of the previous year. To be eligible to enter the design, work has to have been done by a local designer, but typesetting could have be done overseas.

The deadline for entries is Friday, 2 June 2023
