We’re thrilled that Princeton University Press has been shortlisted for the Academic, Educational and Professional Publisher of the Year section of the British Book Awards 2021. This marks the first British Book Awards nomination for PUP since the establishment of our European office in 2000. The shortlisting notes the Press’s work with in-house and licensed audio publishing; the undertaking of major digitization efforts; and PUP’s “decisive action on diversity,” including the funding of scholarships, paid internships and fellowships, and the launch of Global Equity Grants for contracted authors.
The British Book Awards, or Nibbies, “represent the best of the book trade—the UK’s leading creative industry. First launched in 1990 and now run by The Bookseller, the British Book Awards and its sister awards schemes—The British Book Award for Export and Library of the Year—showcase and celebrate the best books, the best bookshops and the best publishers.”
This year’s winners will be announced on May 13.
