CMA Book Awards


This program recognizes the outstanding work of publishers, authors, and book editors. These books promote exceptional Catholic material to the general public, and their writing support readers in their journey to live a faith-filled life.

The Catholic Media Association announces winning entry names at its Catholic Media Conference in June, publishes them in the Awards issue of The Catholic Journalist, and showcases them on the CMA website.

Books submitted to the CMA Book Awards must have a copyright date from the preceding year. Publishers may submit any works published by their company. Authors may submit works of which they are the primary author or co-author. Editors may submit their compilations or reference books.
