There is also a specific category for aspiring students to enter their work, with the opportunity to win a cheque for £500 as well as a short internship with a leading designer, publisher or printer.
A panel of industry experts from the areas of design, publishing and production will judge all the entries. In addition to the 18 category winners, the book that outshines the rest will win the title of ‘Book of the Year’.
The deadline for entries is Friday 9 July 2021. The awards will be presented at a dazzling ceremony on 8 November 2021 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
