Gold Book Awards
How Does the Gold Book Program Work?
The Gold Book Awards are contested in two sections: Directory Division and Marketing and Promotion Division. Entries are judged by a jury of peers and knowledgeable industry experts at the Annual Spring Convention and Trade Show.
Points earned by publisher members in both sections will be totaled to determine which company will be named "Gold Book Publisher of the Year" at each Annual Spring Convention. Each category winner receives a $100 credit towards the company’s registration fees for the next ADP convention and the Gold Book Publisher of the Year receives two complimentary registrations.
To enter the Gold Book competition, identify the division(s) and categories of interest, review the general information, entry requirements, and judging criteria. A complete list of the categories for both the Directory and Marketing divisions can be found below.
