Shortlists announced for The Bookseller Industry Awards

16th April 2012

The shortlists for the 2012 Bookseller Industry Awards have been announced at the London Book Fair, with Foyles in contention in three categories.

Foyles is shortlisted for one of the most coveted awards of the evening, National Bookseller of the Year, where it will go up against Amazon, Blackwell's and W H Smith.

Foyles won the prize's predecessor, the Martina Cole General or Chain Bookselling Company of the Year gong, the first time the Bookseller Industry Awards were held in 2010 after being united with the Trade Nibbies.

The bookshop is also in contention to win the Children's Bookseller of the Year prize, sponsored by Usborne, where it will once again face off against W H Smith, as well as Scholastic Book Fairs and The Works.

Foyles employees also comprise half of the shortlist for the Manager of the Year accolade, with Rebecca Hart from Westfield Stratford City and Rebecca Cameron from Foyles Westfield London (White City) going head to head.

They will take on Darrell Thrush-Denning from Blackwell's in Edinburgh Southbridge and Kristian Berggreen from Kemptown Bookshop in Brighton.

The category winners will be chosen by a panel of judges comprising publishers, bestselling authors and Neil Denny, editor-in-chief of The Bookseller, with the awards presented at a ceremony at the Hilton on Park Lane, London, on May 14th.
