LUP shortlisted for publisher award

Liverpool University Press (LUP) has been shortlisted at the 2012 Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) Independent Publishing Awards, which is run in association with The Bookseller and the London Book Fair.

LUP has been nominated in the category of IPG Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year along with Bloomsbury Professional, Hart Publishing and SAGE.

The citation reads: LUP wins a place on the shortlist after pulling round its fortunes to record a very good year of sales. Stand-out achievements included a very good campaign for The World’s Most Difficult Quiz. This is a terrific success story turning itself around from a loss-making business into a money-making and very worthwhile enterprise.

Managing Director, Anthony Cond, said: “The Independent Publishers Guild represents more than 560 publishing businesses so to be one of four shortlisted for the award alongside major players is a very significant achievement for Liverpool University Press.”
