Book awards for the best indie published fiction, children’s book and General Non-Fiction

The Selfies Book Awards UK

The Selfies Book Awards were set up in 2018 by book trade journal BookBrunch to recognise and reward the fantastic work being done by the many highly professional self-published authors working in the UK today. Sponsored by IngramSpark, and supported by the London Book Fair and Nielsen Book, this initiative aims to discover new talent and reward the very best self-published titles each year.

The Selfies Book Awards are judged on the following criteria:


A fantastic story that entertains and delights the reader


A well produced book


An enticing cover and blurb that successfully addresses the target audience


An effective and creative marketing and publicity strategy that has the potential to achieve great sales
