More about the new awards:
BISG Industry Connector Award
The BISG Industry Connector award is given annually to a volunteer who embodies BISG's commitment to serving as an information hub for the publishing industry.
BISG Standards Bearer Award
The BISG Standards Bearer Award is awarded annually to a volunteer whose advocacy for industry standards most closely aligns with BISG's goal of promoting standards and best practices in publishing. Volunteers involved in BISG committees and working groups are eligible, as are those whose efforts shaped standards managed by other organizations.
The Explorer Award is given to a volunteer, committee, or project that has helped to shape the conversation about the current state and future of book publishing. This award aligns closely with BISG's interest in publishing research about emerging topics, issues and trends that affect the industry.
BISG Community Builder Award
BISG thrives when it brings together perspectives that reflect the multiple parts of the problems we are working to solve. The Community Builder Award is given annually to a volunteer who has worked to create a productive and diverse community in committees, working groups, or the BISG membership as a whole.
BISG Industry Champion Award
Each year, BISG recognizes an individual whose efforts have advanced the publishing industry as a whole with its Industry Champion Award. The chosen individual embodies BISG's mission, which is to facilitate innovation and shared solutions for the benefit of all companies and practitioners who create, produce, and distribute published content.
BISG Industry Innovation Award
Each year, BISG recognizes a company or individual who boldly reimagines what publishing is and can be with its Industry Innovation Award. This is the only award that is open to individuals or companies that are not members of BISG. Nominees in the past have included start-ups, but any firm or individual working to reshape the conversation about publishing is eligible for this award.
The deadline for nominations is June 30st.
