The Panorama Golden Book Awards, one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, will now be conducted regionally in all languages, starting from 2023. This initiative aims to ensure the inclusion of all world languages in the awards and give more authors the recognition they deserve.
Entries will be accepted throughout the year and regional awards will be announced in regular time periods. The awards will be for the best book in the language and 10 books that show the highest quality in various categories. The judging criteria include various elements such as quality of the work, relevance, and overall design of the book. The awards will also recognize the best publishing agencies across the world.
