Applications open for Saltire Society Publisher of the Year 2016

25 July 2016

The 2016 Saltire Publisher of the Year Awards are now open.

As part of the Saltire Society's 80th anniversary celebrations, we are delighted announce two new initiatives for this year.

Saltire Society Publisher of the Year

Firstly the prize for the Saltire Society Publisher of the Year will be the opportunity to have a fully funded place including flights in the Yale Publishers Course in August next year.

Nominations for this award have been opened up to authors, booksellers, literary festivals and universities - as well as from publishers themselves.

  • Deadline for nominations extended to 4pm on Thursday 18 August 2016
  • Deadline for submissions is 4pm, Thursday 8 September 2016

Emerging Publisher of the Year

The second innovation is to award an Emerging Publisher of the Year Award in partnership with Publishing Scotland and the Society of Young Publishers Scotland. The Emerging Publisher Award aims to recognise and encourage the work of an individual in the early stages of their publishing career, as they develop their skills and experience in the industry. The awardee will receive a prize of £500.00

  • Deadline for submissions is 4pm, Thursday 8th September 2016

For full details and to apply, see the Saltire Society website.

Established in 2013 and supported by Creative Scotland, the Saltire Society Publisher of the Year Award is dedicated to encouraging and supporting the Scottish publishing industry. Organised by independent charity the Saltire Society as an integral part of its annual programme of awards and events, the Award aims to recognise and promote the work of Scottish publishers as a critical component of Scotland's modern literary landscape


The 2015 winner and current Saltire Society Publisher of the Year is Freight Books
