There is also a category for aspiring students to enter their work, with the chance to win a cheque for £500 as well as a short internship with a leading designer, publisher or printer.

Industry experts from the areas of design, publishing and production will judge the entries and stamp the book that outshines the rest with the title of ‘Book of the Year’.
