The Diverse Book Awards 2020

Created by The Author School. We want to highlight the best of the diverse voices published in the UK during 2019, both traditionally and self-published. We believe there's a need to showcase the talent of marginalised voices, so we came up with The DBAwards to open a space where the spotlight is on them. 


UK based authors only. 

Authors and publishers can submit any children's, young adult or adult fiction book published in 2019 that features Black, Asian, Latin American and and/or inclusive main characters.

Publishers can submit up to five books. Authors can submit up to two books.
