Jacaranda Books is shortlisted for the IPA for their Diversity and Inclusivity Award

The Independent Publishers Awards is around the corner and the Independent Publishers Guild have announced the shortlist for the award ceremony. 

Jacaranda is one of three publishers who have made the shortlist for the Diversity and Inclusion Award! We are incredibly excited and proud to be considered for this award.

2022 marks our ten year anniversary, it is also ten years since the push for diversification in all parts of the publishing industry. The IPG has said;

"Jacaranda has seen a real problem in publishing and society and responded brilliantly to it... its marketing is helping Black writing to cut through to the mainstream."

We are especially excited that this has come on our ten year anniversary. We’ve previously been nominated for British Book Awards and at the London Book Fair, but this is the first time we’re up for an IPA! 

Fingers cross!
