2016 Special Needs Book Awards Judging Guidelines
Book Entries for the 2016 Special Needs Book Awards should be published between 2012 and 2016 and must be received in print version (no ebooks accepted) and written for an English speaking audience.
Each contest category (depending on the number of entries) will recognize Gold, Silver and Bronze Winners and Honorable Mention (s) may also be given to recognize honorable writing in the area of special needs.
Each author should complete a book submission form with three copies of the book and the entry fee for each entry. Authors may enter more than one book category, but will need to mark the additional categories on the book submission form and add the additional entry fee for each category. Entry fees should be paid in check in U.S. dollars. No books will be returned after the contest and will be donated to libraries, charities, educational programs or those in need. Entry fees start at $65.00 for the first category and $45.00 for additional categories.
Judges names will not be posted due to confidentiality. Books will be judged on book content, book organization, book presentation and the special needs message conveyed in the book. Judges decisions are final.
2016 Special Needs Book Awards final deadline for entry is June 13, 2016, but earlier entries are encouraged to allow more time for judging the book entries. Winners will be announced on or before July 15, 2016.
