The best in the digital movement will be represented in the Publishing Innovation Awards. We want you to be a part of it.
We look forward to your entry and seeing you in New York on January 23rd.
The Publishing Innovation Awards honor the most innovative ebooks, enhanced ebooks, and book apps in 14 categories. It is the mission of the PIAs to highlight excellent publishers/authors, encourage new thinking, and improve the reading experience in the digital age.
The Publishing Innovation Awards celebrate publishers, designers and authors who are improving the reading experience in the digital age. If your ebook, enhanced ebook or book app presents solid design that keeps readability front and center or introduces interactive or social elements that improve the reading experience, we want to see it.

More about the QED Seal
The QED Seal, new to this year's Publishing Innovation Awards, signals to an ebook reader that the title will render well in whatever their preferred reading format and that they can buy with confidence. It is an emblem that publishers, authors, and content creators can affix to their ebook cover and metadata that assures readers they can read that title where they want, how they want.
Your entry in the Publishing Innovation Awards includes a professional 13-point design review that evaluates readability across multiple formats. Regardless of whether you win the PIA awards, you'll receive valuable feedback on your ebook or app's usability and, if your product passes the inspection, you'll receive the QED Seal to help you communicate your digital offering's high standards to potential readers.
