The Stack Awards 2015 is our attempt to recognise the best work done by independent publishers this year, and over the next couple of weeks we’ll run through a different category each day to give more information on what we’re looking for.

If you’re an independent publisher and you’d like to enter, remember we need to have your magazines with us by Friday 9 October – full details are on the awards page.

Or if you know a magazine that you think should enter, please point them this way – we want these awards to spread as far and wide as possible.

Best original non-fiction
This is the award intended for the best non-fiction writing out there. It could be interviews, reportage or pretty much anything based on reflecting the real world in an entertaining, affecting way. Our judges have been doing that for years, and their expertise reflects the variety found in great non-fiction writing:

Shazna Nessa
Director of journalism at Knight Foundation, Shazna has more than 15 years of newsroom experience, including deputy managing editor at the Associated Press in New York. She has taught at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York.

Lynn Barber
A journalist on the Sunday Times, Lynn’s interviews have won six press awards. Her memoir, An Education, was made into a film starring Carey Mulligan.

Shazna and Lynn are ready and waiting to read the best work we can throw at them, so if you’re an independent publisher, pick out your best writing published between October 2014 and September 2015 and send it our way, and maybe you’ll be taking home the trophy come awards night.

Find more information on all our categories and enter the Stack Awards 2015. Good luck!
