ABC International Excellence Award 2020 Winners Announced
Congratulations to the winners of the Accessible Books Consortium International Excellence Awards who were announced yesterday.
The worthy winners are Macmillan Learning in the publisher category and Fondazione LIA for the initiative category. Both winners are applauded for their achievements in improving the accessibility of ebooks and other digital publications for people who are blind, visually impaired or otherwise print-disabled.
Nominees were judged on the criteria of outstanding leadership or achievements in improving the accessibility of ebooks or other digital publications for persons who are print disabled. In the past, winners have been announced at a much anticipated annual awards ceremony at the London Book Fair. Unfortunately, however, the London Book Fair was cancelled this year following the outbreak of the coronavirus in Europe and the winners were advised via email of this honour.
