This link will take you to a pdf file that gives info and registration forms. You can view the Independent Publisher site here:

It does cost to enter this contest, but it is not a fake. It is mentioned favorably in Publishers Weekly, and can bring much needed publicity and prestige to self-published or small-published authors.

Thought some of you might be interested!

Here's their definition of Independent

What do you consider an "independent?"

We define "independent" as:
a) Independently owned and operated
b) Universities and foundations
c) Independently operated imprints who publish less than 50 titles per year.
d) Independent authors who publish themselves or through a subsidy or POD publisher.

I was hoping they took small press publishers too, but they don't. Oh well. Back to the drawing board.
