British Book Award

The British Book Awards or Nibbies (because of the shape of the trophy) are literary awards for the best UK writers and their works, administered by ‘The Bookseller’ publication. The awards have had several previous names, owners and sponsors since being launched in 1990, including the National Book Awards from 2010 to 2014. There are 64 judges this year.
