We hope you are enjoying your San Diego Summer!

But in the meantime, we have a few announcements and a great opportunity for our previous winners!

The San Diego Book Awards will be sponsoring our own nonprofit booth and a group table at the UT Festival of Books!

Saturday, August 24, 2019, at Liberty Station, we’d like to offer tablespace to any previous SDBA winner or finalist. That’s right, published or unpublished, in any year! First come, first served. Space and schedule depend on how many authors take us up on our offer!

Tentative scheduling is 10 am to 4:15 pm, August 24th, 2019.


25th annual San Diego Book Awards Entry Submission Dates are available. 

10/1/2019-12/31/2019. For the Published Contest, we are accepting entries published in 2018 or 2019. That’s right! If you missed it, you can still submit your entry published in 2018! Check out our website for submission guidelines and details.

Remember, the entry forms are not available until the submission window opens in October.


This year’s Contest Winners have been announced on the website
Thank you to all who participate, judge, and otherwise volunteer for the San Diego Book Awards.
