Pratham Books and the Pubishing Next Awards

Like last year, September brings us many good memories and treats :). There were double celebrations for the Pratham Books team at this year's Publishing Next Awards because :
  • Jadav and the Tree-Place won Digital Book of the Year
  • Pratham Books was a runner up for the Publisher of the Year award

According to the Publishing Next website, the Digital Book of the Year award 'seeks to recognize a book that pushes the boundaries of editorial, design and technical excellence within the domain of digital publishing, making the best use of available technology to create a book that enriches its genre. The submissions must demonstrate an understanding of the potential of digital books in reaching its audience'.

Jadav and the Tree-Place won 'for an inspiring tale and an inspiring mode of delivery of content. The use of Creative Commons License for the content and use of a community writing platform are certainly worth emulating for other creators of content for children.
