These awards are run by the Society of Young Publishers (SYP) in partnership with the London Book Fair. They aim to ‘reward young publishing professionals in their twenties who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry’.
This year’s winners were chosen from a pool of 30 applicants. Ella Kahn stood out to judges as she established a literary agency in 2012 aged only 25. The Company has grown significantly and signed 36 clients. Nick is also a leading industry innovator, creating best-selling digital experiences.
