eLit Awards logo

Fifteen years in, a lot has changed since the inception of the eLit Awards, including how books are discussed and consumed by readers around the world. Ebooks are read and produced right alongside printed books. Even our sister award, the Independent Publisher Book Awards, now allows ebooks to be entered in every category AND has special categories for ebooks alone. Given the parity that has evolved, the eLits are evolving as well.

Beyond ebooks, books are experienced in so many more ways digitally today. Social media, websites, podcasts, and audiobooks are constantly changing the way we interact with and discuss books. The eLits are changing to reflect the new era of digital readership, too. We are taking our decades of book awards knowledge and our experienced judges who love everything from #booktok to podcasts to celebrate the next chapter of the book world.
