The Singapore Book Awards has returned for the 7th edition -- a milestone worth celebrating! This year, we received 163 submissions from 35 publishers. After months of careful reviews, our judges shortlisted 42 titles. We will announce these finalist titles on 7th July 2022, at 3 pm, and live-stream on Facebook and YouTube. All our shortlisted titles will also be posted by categories daily from 8th to 19th July 2022. Watch them and guess who the winner for Book of the Year is!

The following two months will give you ample time to vote for the readers’ choice award, and you will stand a chance to win book vouchers worth $300 sponsored by our generous partners. Finally, our grand show will be held on 22nd September 2022: the physical event will begin at 6.30 pm, while the live stream will start at 7 pm.

To stay tuned, just like, follow and subscribe to our Facebook and YouTube.


The Singapore Book Publishers Association (SBPA) (www.singaporebookpublishers.sg), representing local and international publishing companies based in Singapore, is pleased to announce the launch of the Singapore BookData Platform. (https://www.bookdata.sg)

Singapore BookData was developed to assist the local book market and improve the flow of information about books published in Singapore. The Platform allows publishers to generate multiple marketing materials, including listing titles using the ONIX file format, the international standard for electronically representing and communicating product information. This tool automates many of the key tasks publishers use to send book information to physical store retailers, booksellers, online e-commerce stores, educational institutions and libraries. The Platform allows users to check prices, availability, bibliographic information and title classifications.


Work-from-home will be the default working arrangement on Fridays for all Secretariat staff until further notice. If you are sending parcels and documents or would like to meet the Secretariat in person, please send an email to cecilia@singaporebookpublishers.sg for arrangements to be made. Alternatively, you can call the Secretariat at (65) 6957 7093 or (65) 6957 7094. 

Thank you and please stay safe.
