The Independent Publishers Guild unveiled their shortlists last Friday for the 2012 IPG Independent Publishing Awards, run in association with The Bookseller and The London Book Fair. We’re very excited to have been shortlisted for the IPG Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year!
In the IPG’s release statement, the judges commented:
SAGE is shortlisted after impressing with a thoroughly professional publishing programme, wide-ranging digital activity, high production standards and sharp global strategies. “SAGE knows its market and does what it does phenomenally well,” said the judges. “It consistently attracts top talent and is very dynamic internationally.”
Winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on Thursday at the 50th Annual Conference of the IPG taking place this week in Oxfordshire from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 March.
