The Los Angeles Book Festival will consider entries in general non-fiction, fiction, biography/autobiography, children’s books, young adult, how-to, cookbooks, science fiction, business, wild card (anything goes!), compilations/anthologies, sequels (for books that are part of a series), photography/art, poetry, romance, and regional literature published on or after January 1, 2009.
Entries can be in English, French, Spanish, German or Portuguese and can be from major publishers, self-published or issued by an independent publishing house.
Our grand prize for the Los Angeles Book Festival is $1500 cash and a flight to Los Angeles for our gala awards ceremony in March, 2013.
Submitted works will be judged by a panel of publishing industry experts using the following criteria:
1) General excellence and the author’s passion for telling a good story.
2) The potential of the work to gain a wider audience in the worldwide market.
