To be successful, fiction needs to be read.
To be successful, nonfiction has to be brought to the attention of its category audience. Readers have to read your book, love it, and tell someone else. This is “word of mouth.” The Global Ebook Awards are designed to help you achieve these goals.

Accepting entries: Now, from ebook authors and publishers.

Nearly 100 categories: Based on the number of entrants for each category last year, the categories have been expanded.

More than 200 Judges.
We have “category experts” such as book bloggers, editors, reviewers, publishers, authors, book club/reading circle members, and others who love a particular category of book. More judges per category mean more evaluations of your ebook.

Eligibility: Ebooks released to the public anytime in 2013, 2014, or 2015

Application deadline: April 30, 2015 (midnight, Pacific Time).
When ebooks are entered early, more judges have more time to read and evaluate them.

Winners Announcement: August 16, 2015

This web site is not just about the Global Ebook Awards. It is your resource for “everything ebook.” See

Submitting your ebook for a Global Ebook Award is a publicity investment which your ebook deserves.
