Contest FAQs

What's a Cybil?
The Cybils awards are given each year by literary bloggers for the year's best children's and young adult titles. Nominations open to the public on October 1st. This year's nominations end October 15th!

Can anyone nominate?
Yes, anyone may nominate one book per genre during the public nomination period. We ask authors, publishers and publicists to wait until the public nomination period ends to submit their own books.

The Genre's include:

How do I nominate?
We post an online form for public nominations from Oct. 1-15 every year. The form will be live at at 12:00 a.m. PST on October 1. We’ve tried to make the form mobile-friendly, so you can use your phone to nominate if you prefer. Authors and publishers may use the public form to nominate books other than their own, but should contact for information on submitting their own books.

What's great about the Cybils?
The judges are all bloggers.  They blog about the books as they read them - during the judging process! So authors whose books reach the final judging group in their genre usually get their books written about (and thus advertised and given more press and often reviewed) by the judges!  The Cybils get info on your book out to the masses.

So, if you're not sure if the book you love from 2013 has been nominated, go to the Cybils Website and Nominate it Today!

There are only a few days left to Nominate books and then the judging and blogging will begin!
