Every year I get excited to see who the Academy will honor with nominations. I am always surprised, moved, and elated when I discover new talent, new books, rising stars, and those A-list rock stars who continue to raise the standards for all of us year after year.
But nothing is more exciting than to see who YOU, the readers and fans, choose to take home the top honors on Awards night.
There are 31 categories and several of them are new this year, including Best Anthology, Best Series Finale, Best Middle Grade Book, Best Quote, and Best Formatting. So, go pick your favorite authors, books, book trailers, book covers, book cover models, and more!
VOTING is NOW OPEN and will end on Friday, May 27, 2016 at 11:59 PM Central.
Without further ado, we present the nominees in the Fifth Annual UTOPiA Awards (Click on the link below).
You can only vote once. You do not have to vote in every category. If you don’t feel qualified to vote in a certain category, skip it.
We will announce the WINNERS live at the Fifth Annual UTOPiA Awards on Saturday, June 25, 2016.
If you have trouble seeing all 31 categories, please try a different browser. Chrome seems to work best.
