ACP Announces Finalists for 2016 “Excellence in Publishing Awards”


The Association of Catholic Publishers (ACP) is pleased to announce the finalists for the Excellence in Publishing Awards. The goal of these awards is to recognize the best in Catholic publishing.

Awards will be given for books falling into eight categories: Biography, Children’s Books, General Interest, Inspirational, Prayer and Spirituality, Resources for Ministry, Scripture, and Theology. A “Book of the Year” will be named from among the first-place finishers of the eight categories. Almost a quarter of the publisher members are represented by these titles.
Each category was judged by a three-person panel, which reviewed and evaluated the entries down to up to eight titles, all of which will move on to the final round of judging. First, second, and third place winners will be announced in June.
