Berkshire Book Award Nomination Guidelines

Following the lainch of the 2021 Berkshire Book Award, young people aged 11 to 14 years will be invited to nominate their favourite new books.

Books nominated must have been published for the first time in the UK from 1st October 2019 - 30th September 2020. You can nominate as many different titles as you like, but only once per title.

In November, 15 - 20 books that have been nominated will make it onto the long list.

You will then be invited to take part in an online poll to select the top 6 books.

The top 6 titles from the online poll will form the short list for reviewing and voting. These will be announced at the Shortlist event.
