Submitted by: Greg Selfe

The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF), Oxford Brookes University and The Publishers Association are proud to announce the shortlist for the British Book Design and Production Awards 2014. With 15 categories, each full of high calibre applicants, the awards are set to be a great display of excellence and eye-catching book design and production.

A five-strong panel of industry experts from the areas of design, publishing and production gathered for two days at Oxford Brookes University, where they went through a tough selection process in order to reach the shortlist decision.  Due to the high quality of entrants this year the judges had an extremely difficult decision on their hands to select the shortlist.

The winners of each respective category will be announced at the awards evening on Thursday 20 November at the prestigious Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London.  The awards evening is attended by the best in the Print, Design and Publishing sectors, making it the must attend event of the year.  Seats and tables are in hot demand, so to be sure of not missing out on any of the evening’s glittering prize-giving, visit: to confirm your place.

BPIF would like to thank the sponsors for the 2014 Awards:  Canon, Fedrigoni, Friedheim International, Intelligent Finishing Systems, Kodak and Kolbus.
