Welcome to the An Post Irish Book Awards
The An Post Irish Book of the Year is chosen by a public vote from the winners of the An Post Irish Book Awards.
The vote is now open for the An Post Irish Book Awards Book of the Year 2018 and will close on the 25th of January.
An Post, the nation’s postal services provider, has signed a three year headline sponsorship agreement with the Irish Book Awards, opening a new chapter in the history of one of Ireland’s most distinguished and popular literary events. This new partnership with An Post promises to be a wonderful fit for the awards and we are delighted to team up with a nationally recognised brand of such historical distinction, a sponsor who shares our goals and ambitions for the advancement of books and reading in Ireland. Together we intend to spread the word about our unique literary culture with renewed energy and commitment.
The Irish Book Awards have become a landmark event in the Irish bookselling calendar, supported by the entire industry and, with An Post on board as the headline sponsor, we will bring the event to an exciting new level, celebrating the vibrancy of the Irish book business. To Ireland’s readers, writers, publishers, booksellers and librarians, we invite you to join with us in celebrating the birth of The An Post Irish Book Awards.
