Submissions 2022

This is the 20th annual Sports Book Awards campaign.

We aim to hold a live ceremony in late May 2022. We will of course respect any Covid-19 restrictions and we will move to a virtual ceremony if necessary.

All sports books, published in the UK in hardback or paperback in calendar year 2021, are eligible. However, different editions of titles shortlisted in last year’s awards are ineligible for submission.

Timing: it is anticipated that the key winning titles in each of the relevant categories will be available in a paperback format for the winners campaign during Summer 2022.

Please send 1 copy of each submitted title to SBA C/O AGILE IDEAS, Studio 10, Glove Factory Studios, Brook Lane, Holt, Wilts, BA14 6RL.

Publishing companies generally select one person to make nominations.
Please check the award categories and criteria and fill in your submissions below – you can enter multiple titles for consideration by clicking the plus icon next to the award category.
