Member benefit: SPN Book of the Year Award submission

Building on the success of the Most Underrated Book Award (founded in 2012), SPN’s annual book award is now known simply as the SPN Book of the Year Award. Books published by all SPN members are eligible. Thanks to generous sponsorship from the Australian Booksellers Association and ArtsHub, the winning book’s author and publisher each receive a $1000 cash prize. In addition, the authors and publishers of shortlisted titles receive a year’s free membership of ArtsHub. Find out more about the SPN Book of the Year Award by clicking here.
