The Accessible Books Consortium (ABC) International Excellence Award, to be given at London Book Fair 2020, is now open for nominations. ABC aims to increase the number of books worldwide in accessible formats, and make them available to people who are print disabled; the ABC International Excellence Award, given at LBF, recognizes outstanding leadership and achievement in advancing the accessibility of commercial e-books or other digital publications.
Two awards will be presented, one to a publisher and one for an initiative. You can nominate your own organisation or a third party anywhere in the world, and nominations are encouraged from those based in developing or least developed countries. The submissions deadline is December 16, 2019, and the awards will be given on March 10, 2020. Click through for full details and visit the LBF awards site for submission information.
