Earlier this month The London Book Fair announced the shortlists for the International Excellence Awards 2022. Saga Egmont is honoured to be part of this years nominees for Audiobook Publisher of the Year!
Andy Ventris, Director, The London Book Fair, said: “The dedication and passion for books shown throughout the global trade is truly inspiring, and we are delighted to recognise some of the most innovative companies, initiatives and individuals from around the world in this year’s International Excellence Awards shortlists.”
“We wish all our shortlistees the very best of luck, and look forward to announcing the winners of the International Excellence Awards at this year’s London Book Fair, as we come together in person to reconnect at Olympia London in April.”
Currently in their ninth year, the International Excellence Awards were started in 2013 to appreciate achievements and success in the publishing industry across the world. Celebrating dedication, originality and ingenuity, the shortlist was handpicked by an expert judging panel within each field.
Nikoline Nordfred Eriksen, Editor-in-Chief at Saga Egmont reflected on the announcement: “We are so thrilled to be nominated for the Audiobook Publisher of the Year award alongside established names like Macmillan and Penguin Random House, which acknowledges Saga Egmont’s position within the global audiobook scene. We are no longer “just” market leaders in the Nordics but across all of Europe and the Spanish speaking world, and with new high-profile partnerships with UK based publishers we have also claimed our space in the English-speaking world.”
We at Saga Egmont are also looking forward to attending London Book Fair next month!
