Submissions are only accepted from publishing houses.
Books with more than one author are eligible as long as all authors are resident in the UK or Ireland.
All books entered must have a registered ISBN number or equivalent.
Self-published titles, non-fiction, anthologies and graphic novels are not eligible. Books published as part of a series are eligible but must work as a standalone title.
All books must be first published in either hardback or paperback in 2018. Books published in paperback in 2018 that were previously published in hardback in 2017 or earlier are not eligible.
If a book is shortlisted, the publisher will commit to contributing £1,750 per shortlisted title to marketing and promotion costs, or £1,200 per title for publishers with fewer than 10 employees. The publisher will also send 15 more copies of the shortlisted title to The Bookseller. If publishers enter online but do not send 5 copies of the book to The Bookseller office, that title will be considered ineligible.
Publishers can enter no more than four titles per imprint or publishing house.
