These Awards are designed to acknowledge and champion the work of marketing & communications professionals within the book industry. The judges – independent marketing and book trade experts – are looking for a creative and leading approach in the following three areas:

  • Innovation and creativity
  • Ability to reach and engage the target audience
  • A good return on investment

There are FIVE categories in which BMS members are eligible to submit their campaigns. They are:

  • Adult and Children’s Guerilla campaign (up to £2.5k)
  • Adult Fiction (above £2.5k)
  • Non-Fiction (above £2.5k)
  • Children’s (above £2.5k)
  • Multi-title campaign (eg backlist, series, or some other grouping of titles)


Winners will be announced on Wednesday 1 November at the next BMS Meeting –> you can RSVP to attend here

We are building a campaigns showcase for our website!

Members always tell us that having a cross-industry platform to learn about the latest campaigns at our joint member events is one of the most valuable services we offer. So we’ve been working hard to take this further by creating a new members-only section on our website to showcase campaigns submitted for the BMS Awards, to be launched towards the end of 2017.
