Next Generation Indie Book Awards — Entries are now being accepted for the 2022 Awards

2022 Sponsorship Opportunities

Do you support independent book publishing? If the answer is YES, you'll want to review and consider this invitation to sponsor the 2022 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

Now in its thirteenth year, the Next Generation Indie Book Awards (also known as NGIBA) is the largest international awards program honoring exceptional books published by independent publishers or self-published authors. Referred to in the media as the "Sundance film festival" of the publishing world, the NGIBA program offers cash prizes ranging from $100 to $1500, trophies, and medals to winners and finalists in more than 80 genre categories.

NGIBA was founded by Literary Agent, Marilyn Allen of the Allen O'Shea Literary Agency, publishing executive, Catherine Goulet, and the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group. Judges include editors, literary agents, book reviewers, writing teachers, publishing executives, and best-selling authors. Winners and finalists are announced and celebrated each year during the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference at a gala cocktail reception.

Every year we hold a gala awards ceremony. Our treasured authors and indie publishers have their winning titles published in a catalog distributed to thousands of people during the annual ALA program, and there is a limited opportunity for winners and finalists to feature and sign their books at the ALA conference, in conjunction with Headline Books, an esteemed independent publisher.

As a Next Generation Indie Book Awards sponsor, your organization receives widespread recognition as a supporter of quality indie publishing. Platinum sponsors of the NGIBA program have the exclusive opportunity to have a prestigious award in your company name, receive national publicity for your brand, and reach thousands of authors engaged in independent book publishing.

While many of our judges have worked with successful indie authors and publishers, many have also worked with major publishing houses such as Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Penguin Random House, Bantam Books, Hachette Book Group, MacMillan, Scholastic, and others.
