Our mission with our Award Contests is to provide recognition and promotion to Indie authors.
Most contest organizers require a high entry fee, and they reject books with low rating and only a few reviews. In our opinion, most Indie authors, no matter how great their books are, can't afford effective marketing, therefore, their books are not found by readers and a lot of amazing stories remain unknown.
There are Award Contest that promise publishing deals to the winners. These are mostly scams, only a few big publisher conducts this kind of contest and they require unpublished books to enter.
There are those contests that require high entry fee and they offer cash prizes but in the fine print they states that the prize depends on the number of books entered.
Then, unfortunately, there are those contest that pay bestseller authors to put their names on the judges' list but the authors don't read and judge the books, only supply their names as a catch.
In our contests the judges are volunteer teachers, authors, and avid readers. Because they have social site profiles and belong to reading clubs, they wish to remain anonymous to avoid soliciting messages by authors asking for favors.
Our volunteer judges rewarded some wonderful books in our:
