List of Book Awards Contests image

Book awards contests can be a great way for a new or experienced author to win a prize, get recognition, and improve your chances at getting a major book deal.

Award-winning authors tend to be more successful when it comes to finding a literary agent, getting a publisher, and selling more books.

The problem is there are so many book awards contests out there, and many of them can be quite expensive. So you need to do your research to make sure you only enter your book into a contest that is likely to be worth it for you.

That’s why our team put together this list of the 50 best book awards contests for authors.
