Digital Book World 2018 Award Finalists Announced

We are pleased to announce the Finalists for the Digital Book World 2018 Awards - part of the DBW 2018 program and the largest publishing awards program in the world.
We received an incredible number of submissions, from all over the world. As we culled through them, we made decisions on some categories which could be combined with others, and some categories which did not end up with enough volume to justify Finalists, and were removed. Every Finalist was selected from among a pool of nominations made to Digital Book World 2018 over the calendar year.
A select number of awards will be announced live at Digital Book World 2018 (October 2-4, Nashville TN) during an Awards Reception on Tuesday, October 2, while all others will be made public that evening via
Once you have registered for Digital Book World 2018, if you want to attend the Digital Book World 2018 Awards Reception, which will have very limited availability, you must register separately. Registrations for this will open up Monday, September 17, at 8 AM Central via Eventbrite.
We encourage you to check out these fantastic Finalists. Thanks to our judges from all across the world who participated in this process.
