Publishing Next Announces its Industry Awards in Eleven Categories | Frontlist

Kalachuvadu Publications has received Publisher of the Year for the second time.

The annual Publishing Next Industry Awards, established by Publishing Next to foster conversation and networking in the book publishing business, recognize innovation and leadership in the pan-Indian book commerce. It acknowledges publishers of all sizes and across all Indian languages.

Kalachuvadu Publications won the Publisher of the Year award for the first time in 2018. The Bookstore of the Year award, the only one in the country for independent bookshops, was not announced this year due to a low number of entries.

Leonard Fernandes, co-founder of Publishing Next, noted that "the fact that these Awards have been presented consecutively for 10 years now, and in a wide array of categories, speaks to both the respect the awards have garnered from the publishing community as well as its commitment towards continuously encouraging publishing excellence."
