AS CHOSEN BY AUSTRALIAN INDEPENDENT BOOKSELLERS
The Indie Book Awards were established in 2008 with the aim of creating a unique award recognising and rewarding the best Australian writing as chosen by Australian independent booksellers. The Awards celebrate the enormous depth and range of literary talent in this nation.
The Indie Book Awards differ from other literary awards because they are chosen by independent booksellers who are renowned for their love of books and reading, support new and emerging Australian authors and foster a love of quality writing.
All Australian independent bookshops are invited to nominate in the Indie Book Awards. Independent bookstores across the country are owned and managed by people who care about their customers, books and the art of bookselling and, most importantly, the importance of fostering strong and vibrant Australian culture and writing.
Leading Edge Books, a buying and marketing group behind some of Australia's best independent bookstores, are proud to coordinate the administration and promotion of the Indie Book Awards.
The Awards provide Australian independent booksellers with an opportunity to promote their point of difference as supporters of Australian authors and publishers, who can give informed recommendations and advice to their customers.
The Awards provide multi-layered opportunities for Australian Independent Booksellers and Australian publishers to support an initiative with significant positive sales and publicity potential.
