2023 Human Relations Indie Book Awards Judging Guidelines

The purpose of the Human Relations Indie Book Awards is to recognize indie authors who have written books with a human relations focus related to various interactions among people in different settings such as work, organizations, school, home, family or in personal lives. This is the eighth year of the Human Relations Indie Book Awards.  We had a diverse group of indie authors for the previous years’ awards that ranged from professional perspectives to indie author’s personal journeys of self-reflection and human relationships. Book entries for the 2023 Human Relations Indie Book Awards should be published between 2016 and 2023 and must be received in print version (no ebooks accepted) and written for an English speaking audience. Books can be self-published, independently published or have a creative or scholarly writing approach from smaller publishing companies or presses where the author had a voice in the publishing process.


The 2023 Human Relations Indie Book Awards deadline has passed for this year. 

Winners will be announced in May 2023 when judging is completed.
