22nd February, 2023

We are pleased to announce that Rock the Boat has been Shortlisted for 2023 Children’s Publisher of the Year at the IPG Awards.

The Independent Publishing Awards recognise the success of the indie sector. Oneworld is shortlisted for its children’s and Young Adult imprint, Rock the Boat, for the second year in a row. The judges liked its ambitious publishing that embraces under-represented authors and important topics. Engagement with customers, including via a new website and TikTok, were excellent.

The judges said: “Rock the Boat is doing some very bold publishing and making it work. Diversity has been at the heart of everything they do from the start.”

The winners will be announce on at the 2023 Independent Publishing Awards Lunch on Wednesday 22 March.

We are delighted that Oneworld has been shortlisted for Trade Publisher of the Year at the IPG Awards 2023. You can learn more about this shortlisting here.
