Independence Celebrations: The Second Official Bookstagrammy Awards

Dress to Impress as we roll out the red carpet for a second time for the famous Bookstagrammy Award Ceremony. Last year over 1,000 Bookstagram accounts entered, making this the most representative award for Bookstagrammers in the World. This year there are again three categories – for both those in Hay for the weekend and those who could not make it - so six prizes in total. This year’s themes are:

1. Book(s) that have given meaning to my life. #haymeaningoflife

2. Book(s) that give us hope or no hope for the future. #dystopiahay

3. A plain shelfie. #hayshelfie

 Judges include Peter Florence of The Hay Festival, Richey Beckett, Local Artist, Mari Fforde of Hay Castle Trust and from away: @james_trevino, @elizabeth_sagan, Jude – @mybookbath , Maria - @booksugar and Siobhan - @thehalcyondaysofsummer

These five bookstagrammers have over 510 thousand followers between them!
