Four Book Bloggers Will Win Free Trip to BEA

To celebrate the role book bloggers play in the industry, Association of American Publishers members and Goodreads have teamed up for the Independent Book Blogger Awards.

Four bloggers will win a trip to BookExpo America (BEA) along with “free airfare and hotel accommodations and a pass to the three-day global gathering.” Bloggers can submit five examples of their best work to the contest; entries will be accepted from today until Monday, April 9th. Follow this link for contest details.

Check it out: “The contest is open to US-based bloggers, at least 18 years of age, who dedicate at least 75 percent of their blog’s written content to coverage of books and the industry and who have posted regularly from February 1, 2011 through February 1, 2012.  The blog cannot be affiliated with and not compensated by any commercial or academic publication, but may include those who blog for institutions such as libraries or bookstores with no commercial media ties. There are four categories for submissions:  Adult Fiction, Adult Non-Fiction, Children’s/Young adult and Industry News.  Entries will be judged on such qualities as writing, analysis, design and presentation and reader impact.”
