We love to celebrate the outstanding talent within our industry. Our awards ceremonies range from those celebrating international excellence in all fields of the publishing industry, to recognising the innovative trailblazers who are under 30 and taking the industry by storm. We also have an award that recognises those taking the publishing industry online via book blogs, Instagram and book vlogs.

LBF International Excellence Awards

LBF International Excellence Awards celebrates excellence in global publishing, and we are very proud of our popular show addition that is now in its seventh year. This award showcases the wealth of success and innovation in the world’s publishing activity outside the UK, and over 50 nations have received recognition at LBF since the awards started. Held in partnership with The Publishers Association, The International Excellence Awards are a grand celebration of publishing and related activities outside the UK. 

Cameo Awards

The CAMEOs recognise the many creative endeavours spawned by books, from book to screen and everything in between! We all have our favourite adaptations, whether we agree or not if the original book, or the secondary format, was better. There are four categories: book to: TV; Film; Stage; Audio. Anyone can submit an entry, be they a production company, publisher, agent, bookseller, or anyone wanting to nominate a third party.

Judges will be looking for demonstration of quality and success, including, but not limited to: box office ticket sales; reviews; press coverage; critical acclaim; social media profile; peer-to-peer recommendation, and industry prize nominations.

The Trailblazer Awards

The Trailblazer Awards are powered by The London Book Fair and in partnership with the Society of Young Publishers (SYP) and BookBrunch. These awards were created to celebrate the next generation of the UK publishing industry; those ‘roaring through their 20s’.

The winners of the 2020 Trailblazer Awards were announced at a glitzy ceremony at White City House on 28 January 2020.
