We're excited to announce that EssayJack has been shortlisted for The London Book Fair International Excellence Awards in the Educational Learning Resources Award category!
The awards, which are held in partnership with the UK Publishers Association (PA) and sponsored by Hytex, celebrate excellence in sixteen categories, including international publishing, academic and scholarly publishing, children’s publishing, literary translation and digital innovation. In each award category, the judging panel was comprised of experts in that sector.
The London Book Fair itself is one of the world's best gatherings of publishers, booksellers, and others in this industry. Who knows? Maybe we'll find another distribution partner like Nelson while we're there!
EssayJack has been named as a finlaist in the Educational Learning Resources Award category which recognises companies that have produced innovative, exciting and pedagogically sound, new learning resources, that enhance and broaden the learning and learners’ experience. We're incredibly honoured to be recognised in this space alongside other global and influential organisations.

What do this year's Awards Organisers have to say?
Jacks Thomas, Director, The London Book Fair, said: “I am delighted that the 2017 International Excellence Awards shortlist is truly global, with all five continents represented. The strength and breadth of the entrants on this list is impressive, and is a testament to the passion, commitment and creativity of all those involved in publishing, selling and bringing books to a wider audience. What better place than the globally focused, multicultural and creative hub of London to bring all these talented individuals and inspiring organisations together? I’m very much looking forward to welcoming the shortlisted nominees to London in March, to celebrate their success.”
Stephen Lotinga, Chief Executive, the Publishers Association, said: “These awards uniquely celebrate the global publishing industry here in London. We are especially delighted to see the introduction of the Inclusivity in Publishing award for publishers who are excelling in their efforts to improve inclusivity in the publishing supply chain. This award, together with the other UK awards which recognise young and upcoming talent in our industry and efforts from the industry to improve the supply chain for accessible publishing, showcases a real cross-section of excellence in publishing.”
