The Saboteur Awards are Back!

The sixth annual Saboteur Awards are now open for nominations. Celebrating the best of the indie literature scene, from poetry pamphlets to live performance, the awards are decided by public nominations and votes.

Voting occurs in two rounds:

Round 1: Nominations 1-24th April 2016
Shortlist announced 1st May
Round 2: Vote on the shortlist, 1-24th May 2016
Results announced on 27th May 2015 at Vout-O-Reenees, London

As usual, there are twelve awards. The ‘Best One-Off Event Award’ has been replaced by the broader ‘Best Wildcard Award’ which we hope will encourage nominations for exciting works and events that don’t fit easily into the other boxes.

Previous winners of the Saboteur Awards include Jo Bell’s 52 Project, Tom de Freston’s The Charnel House, spoken word performer Hollie McNish, and Manchester’s Bad Language.You can find out more about the awards and previous winners on the dedicated website

This year’s awards are sponsored by Sacred Gin (from the Sacred Spirits Company).

As with last year’s nominations, you need to nominate in three categories minimum for your nomination to count.

Nominations close at 12.30pm (GMT) on 24th April 2016.

      Hi Rosemary, that’s normal, they’re set to randomize so that no category is seen to be superior over another. Don’t worry! It’s the same survey!
