Policy Press Shortlisted for the IPG Frankfurt Book Fair Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year Award 2016

ipg-independent-publishing-awards-2016We are excited to announce that Policy Press has been shortlisted for the Frankfurt Book Fair Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year Award 2016. We are proud to be shortlisted alongside Bloomsbury Publishing, SAGE Publishing and Berghahn Books.
 
This is what the judges had to say about Policy Press:
“Policy Press had a standout year in 2015, publishing a range of important, influential and well-reviewed books, experimenting with activities including short reads, apps and freemium content and hitting record turnover. It has increased sales and stepped up its publishing in a difficult market, and that takes a lot of nerve. It really punches above its weight.”
Alison ShawPolicy Press Director Alison Shaw said:
I am totally thrilled that Policy Press has been shortlisted for this award. Whatever the outcome it is a wonderful testimony to the hard work of the whole Policy Press team.”
 
IPG chief executive Bridget Shine said: 
Competition for the IPG Independent Publishing Awards gets tougher every year—but the strength of this year’s nominations was remarkable. We congratulate all the IPG members who entered the Awards and thank our judges for the care they have taken over these shortlists. Every company and individual on these lists should feel very proud.
The awards will be announced on 3 March 2016.
