Approved Publishers 

 Important Announcement 

Due to much confusion about what an audiobook publisher is, as well as some issues with people accidentally altering the application form, we are temporarily putting a hold on publisher approval applications. 

If your title is self-published* or your publisher is not listed on the form, please wait until the we re-publish the applcation to submit your title. Don't worry - we will have everything back up shortly and you will have plenty of time to enter before the deadline.

* If you aren't sure if your book can be entered as a self-published title please take a look at the FAQs below.

The following publishers are eligible to enter titles for the 2021 Independent Audiobook Awards:

This list is subject to change as publishers grow and become ineligible or new publishers are approved.

Please note that the “Publisher” field is meant for the name of the audiobook publishing company that produced the title, not the print publisher. 

There is no need to fill out this form if the book was self-published (ACX, Findaway, Spoken Realms, Author's Republic, etc…)

 Approved Publisher  FAQ  

What if I don't see the name of my publisher in the dropdown list on the submission form?

First, check the title's listing on Audible to verify who is listed as the audio publisher. (This will be the second copyright listed: e.g. ©2020 John Grisham (P)2020 Random House Audio)

If the author or narrator are listed as the audio rights holder on Audible we consider the title to be self-published and you will enter "N/A" for the publisher.


The narrator or author used a distributor to publish this title. Why don't I see them listed? 


Distributors, such as ACX, Author's Republic, Findaway, Spoken Realms, or similar, are not publishing companies. If the title was self-published using a distributor it is considered "self-published" and you will choose "N/A" from the dropdown. 


What if I don't see my publisher on the approved list? 


If the audio publisher isn't listed please have the publisher fill out an approval form. (The form is temporarily disabled, but will be back and listed at the top of this page soon)

**Please Note** 

This is only for audio publishers, not the print publisher. If you are unsure about whether or not your print publisher also produced the audio title you can check your Audible listing to see who has the production copyright.​ (This will be the second copyright listed: e.g. ©2020 John Grisham (P)2020 Random House Audio)
