Welcome to the An Post Irish Book Awards 2022.
As we head towards the climax of a new awards year, we do so more than ever convinced that Irish literature is the gift that keeps on giving. Irish writers have never been more prominent and well-respected globally and we are proud to celebrate their achievements annually in The An Post Irish Book Awards.
Some wonderful books have been published this year. The shortlists have just been announced and the winners will be honoured at the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on November 23rd in the Convention Centre Dublin. We are super-excited that the event can be staged live and in-person this year and look forward to meeting up with old friends to share in the camaraderie that characterises the book trade in Ireland.

Learn about our Judging Process
The An Post Irish Book Awards are different in character from conventional literary awards where winners attract the subjective approval of a jury normally comprising 3-5 judges. To decide fifteen awards in this way would be impractical and inimical to our aim to canvass the widest possible sector of the reading public.
