APA is pleased to present these two special awards which highlight outstanding achievements in audiobooks.

The Distinguished Achievement in Production Award is presented to an audiobook that demonstrates excellence in all areas of production, while the Audiobook of the Year recognizes the audiobook that, through quality, innovation, marketing and sales, has had the most significant impact on the audio industry.

About the 2015 Audies Competition:
The Audies, sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association (APA), is
the premier awards program in the United States recognizing distinction
in audiobooks and spoken word entertainment. Through The Audies award
competition, publishers are able to enter titles in various categories for
recognition of achievement. Finalists are selected and, from that group of finalists,
one winner is awarded. Finalists will be notified in March 2015, and showcased on
the APA website, to the press, and in APA materials. Winners will be recognized
at the exciting Audies gala in New York City in May 28, 2015. Two special
awards highlight outstanding achievements: The Distinguished Achievement in
Production Award goes to an audiobook that demonstrates excellence in all areas
of production, while the Audiobook of the Year recognizes the audiobook that,
through quality, innovation, marketing and sales, has had the most significant
impact on the industry. Separate Calls for Entries will go out for these awards
in September and the recipients will be announced at the 2015 Audies
Gala. We invite you to join us in this celebration of the spoken word!
