Indiaplaza.in, (formerly fabmall.com) India’s leading online shopping destination, today announced the inaugural Indiaplaza Golden Quill Book Awards. Initiated as an annual event, the award is aimed at encouraging and promoting excellence in writing amongst Indian authors.

• Unique book awards for Indian Authors with both, critics & online readers’ choice;
• Impressive panel of judges to include Sir Mark Tully, Shanta Gokhale & Anita Nair.

Leading publishing houses in India have been invited to nominate their best books published in the calendar year 2007 for the long-list of the award. A panel of well-known book reviewers and critics will then shortlist 5 books which will be evaluated by a preeminent panel of judges for the final Critics’ Choice Award. A unique aspect of The Indiaplaza Golden Quill Book Awards is readers and booklovers through an online voting system hosted on indiaplaza.in will nominate the ‘Reader’s Choice Award’.

Both the winners will be awarded the ‘Golden Quill’ trophy and presented with a cash prize of rupees 1 lakh each.

The judges’ panel includes celebrated writer and former BBC journalist Sir Mark Tully; writer, journalist & well known theatre critic Shanta Gokhale, and award winning writer & popular columnist Anita Nair. Mahasweta Devi, novelist and Padma Vibhushan (2006), Magsaysay (1997), Jnanpith (1996) Awards winner will be the Guiding Spirit for the Indiaplaza Golden Quill Book Awards 2008. Ms. Arundhati Ghosh, Deputy Director, India Foundation for the Arts will ensure that the entire process from long listing to the short listing is fair and transparent.

Commenting on the launch, K. Vaitheeswaran, Co-founder and COO, Indiaplaza.in said, “With the great success that Indian authors are achieving in the global literary arena, we believe it is an apt time to establish an award that will recognize Indian writers based in India. As India's largest online bookstore, we have served book lovers in India while also expanding the market with a selection of over 4 million titles. With this endeavour, we aim to provide a further fillip to writing and the habit of reading books.”

“We will continue our support to nurture the talent of Indian writers and over the next few years introduce more Golden Quill awards in other categories like Indian language fiction & non-fiction, Children’s Books, Business Management besides others,” added Vaitheeswaran.

Commenting on her association with the Indiaplaza Golden Quill Book Awards, panelist Shanta Gokhale said, “Writers write because they have to; but do so largely without public encouragement. So when an award like the Golden Quill is announced, there is much hope and excitement. Also, where the Golden Quill Award is concerned, there is a reassurance that their work will be evaluated in a transparent and impartial way.”
