2020 Book Awards

The CPA Book Awards is an annual program to recognize the outstanding work product of publishers, authors, and book editors. These books promote outstanding Catholic material to the general public. Their writings support readers in their journey to live a faith-filled life.

Books submitted to the 2020 CPA Book Awards must have a copyright date of 2019 (unless entering into categories B41, B46, or B48). 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.

The Catholic Press Association announces recipient names at its Catholic Media Conference in June, publishes them in the Awards issue of The Catholic Journalist, and showcases them on the CPA website
