About the Four Seasons Book Awards
Every Season Has A Moment, Every Moment Has Its Season
Make This Season Yours!
Conducted annually, the Four Seasons Book Awards honors independently published titles from around the world. The awards are shed light and bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, traditional, and self-published books released each year.
The "Four Seasons" Book Awards are a brand-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all independent and traditionally published books. It is open to authors and publishers worldwide who produce books written in English that are for the North American market. It doesn't matter if your book was previously published or is new, your book qualifies for an opportunity to win.
The goal is to offer authors a continual branding method throughout the Four Seasons of the year. We offer four competitions, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
Each Award has amazing prizes and each submission will be entered into the end-of-year Grand Prize! Seasonal prizes are awarded at the end of every season. For example: The Spring Edition Finalists will be named at the end of Spring, Summer Edition at the end of Summer and so forth. All Finalists from every season will be entered into the Grand Prize.
The 3 Grand Prize Winners will be named on New Years Eve.
