Nonfiction Book Awards is an extension of the Nonfiction Authors Association that works to focus on excellence in non-fiction books. The programme operates year-round so an entry can be submitted at any time. Books are not judged against competing titles, but are reviewed by judges based on a scoring system that evaluates the quality of the writing and production of the book (editing, design and other details). A book can receive a bronze, silver or gold award provided the final evaluation score qualifies. The programme is open to nonfiction authors world-wide.
