The specific genre categories are judged by three industry professionals, coming from the library, bookstore, reviewer, designer, publicity and editorial markets.  Entrants receive direct feedback from all judges.

All finalists will be notified in early spring.  Finalists will receive a certificate of excellence; winners will receive a Benjamin Franklin Award trophy. Winners and finalists will also be featured on the IBPA website, among other places.
