About Us

The Diverse Book Awards was established in November 2019 and was created by Abiola Bello and Helen Lewis, founders of The Author School (www.theauthorschool.com)


There are many book awards but very few that are just for diversity and we believe diversity is something to celebrate! Our first year running the awards was AMAZING! And we hope to

recreate that magic for many years to come.

We are open to anyone who has written a book for children, young adults and adult. Fiction only and UK based authors. 

More diverse books are self-published so we are open to self-published and traditionally published books. A publisher or an author can submit a book published in 2020. Publishers can submit up to five books and authors can submit up to two books. 

Once you fill in the form please do email it to us with your book cover to hello@thediversebookawards.co.uk and we will be in touch with more information. 

If you are submitting more than one book, please do send seperate entry forms.

Anyone on the shortlist will have to contribute a fee that goes towards the marketing and publicity of the awards. Please do read the terms and conditions

We are going to shout about the shortlist and all will be invited to an awards ceremony in October where the winner will be announced.

Prize to be announced!

Any media enquiries please do send us an email hello@thediversebookawards.co.uk
