Filipino Readers Choice Awards 2014 Final List And Online Ballot Voting Period



Nominations for the 2014 Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards!

An initiative of the Filipino Book Bloggers Group, the Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards debuted at the 2nd Filipino Reader Conference in 2012, and was established to develop awareness and appreciation of Philippine literature, recognize the reader’s role in creating the meaning and experience of a literary work, and give the readers a voice in the Philippine book industry.

Nomination period is from August 4 to 18, 2014, so that’s plenty of time to nominate your favorite Filipino-authored, 2013 published books, and tell your friends to nominate their favorite Philippine published books, too!

To nominate a book, fill out the nomination form and hit submit. You can nominate as many books as you want, but don’t forget: only books written by Filipino authors, published from January to December 2013 will be accepted. Nominations that do not fulfill these criteria will be disqualified. Not quite sure if the book you read and liked was published in 2013? We have a list of 2013 published books here. If you’re an author or a publisher and your 2013 book(s) are not in the list, please send us an email at filipinoreaderschoice@gmail.com with the title, author, and publisher and we’ll add them to the list. :)
