2009 NEW YORK BOOK SHOW
Sponsored by the
Bookbinders' Guild of New York
CALL FOR ENTRIES
The New York Book Show Committee invites you to enter your publications in the 23rd Annual New York Book Show, sponsored by the Bookbinders' Guild of New York. Through this annual award show, the Guild encourages, recognizes, honors, and celebrates excellence in book production and design.
Each participant is required to complete a 2009 ENTRY FORM for each item to be submitted for judging via this website. (http://www.nybookshow.org/)
REVIEW ALL PAGES ON THIS WEBSITE AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. (http://www.nybookshow.org/2009howtoenter.html)
QUESTIONS MAY BE SENT TO: email@example.com
The 2009 ENTRY FORM(S) can be completed and submitted any time prior to the arrival of the package containing your title/jacket/cover at Random House on the deadline dates of November 17, 18 and 19, 2008.
NO BOOKS OR COVERS OR JACKETS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL NOVEMBER 17, 18 AND 19.
You may enter either as a book or book series or cover/jacket or cover/jacket series. All book entries will be judged for both interior and exterior and component quality. (Remember: You must enclose TWO printouts of EACH of the AUTOMATIC E-MAIL RESPONSES showing your completed 2009 ENTRY FORM with each book or book series or cover/jacket or cover/jacket series entry. )
UPON SUCCESSFUL SUBMISSION, YOU WILL RECEIVE IMMEDIATE NOTICE.
Entries must have been published between January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008.
A book of thirty-two pages or more may be bound in either hard or soft cover. Publications fewer than thirty-two pages must be hardcover and thus distinguishable from a booklet.
Books in a Series
Books must be published as a series, identical in design and manufacture. For ELHI texts, select one student edition per grade, one teacher edition from one grade, and one piece of ancillary material.
To ensure that entries are evaluated with the appropriate criteria in mind, categories have been established to recognize the intended use of the book, as well as the demands, constraints, challenges, and opportunities that exist in each category.
All books, covers, and jackets are entered in ONLY ONE of the SIX categories. Please read the CATEGORIES descriptions and submit your entries accordingly USING THE APPROPRIATE CORRESPONDING CATEGORY NUMBER AND SUBCATEGORY LETTER ON THE INTERNET ENTRY FORM. Please note that entries are subject to the judges' final discretion--if they decide a book would be better served in a category other than that originally entered, it is in their purview to move it.
