BELMA 2017 Shortlist

Dear colleague,

The finalists for the 2017 BELMA have been published on the BELMA.eu website and the finalists have been notified. If you have taken part and have not been notified your titles are unfortunately not on the shortlist. However, don't forget that each entry receives a detailed evaluation with recommendations to help you improve your products. And also, there is a special prize each year which will only be revealed at the Book Fair in Frankfurt.

As you know there is a sophisticated evaluation system that gives you both an overall score and also a score in comparison to the other entries in your category. Every title is scored by three members of the jury. The points are added and averaged. Then, every jury member gives a presentation and evaluation of the titles he or she has scored to the whole jury. This final evaluation round takes place in August when the jury gathers for one week to discuss all the entries.

This year we had many excellent entries especially in categories 2 and 3, but very few entries in categories 1 and 4. We have therefore decided to award more prizes in categories 2 and 3 - but which ones will only be revealed at Frankfurt on Wednesday, 11th of October, in hall 4.

Hope to see you there!

Best wishes from

Jean-Claude Lasnier
