Posted on February 20, 2006 in News & Reviews

Ten entrepreneurial young publishers from around the globe are competing for the third annual British Council International Young Publisher of the Year (IYPY) award. 

The award celebrates the creative and leadership abilities of young publishers (aged 25-35) from developing markets, and ten finalists from Argentina, Colombia, Jordan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Oman, Slovenia, South Africa, and Thailand have been selected by local juries as their national winners. The finalists will be rewarded with a tour of the UK publishing industry, where they will meet with key people from throughout the book trade.

Their visit will culminate at London Book Fair where they have the opportunity to make further international contacts and actually do business.
