Now in its 32nd year, the Washington Publishers Book Design and Effectiveness Competition recognizes, celebrates, and encourages excellence in bookmaking across the greater Washington, DC, book publishing community. The competition’s judges evaluate the excellence of each book’s design and effectiveness in achieving its publisher’s goals, meeting its readers’ needs, and reaching its target market. Prizes are awarded in 15 categories, seven designs for each of the two publisher categories—plus best of show. This year, two new categories have been added: Journal Cover and Ebook Cover.

More information available on our Design Awards page.
