Westchester Publishing Services a Gold Sponsor of PW Star Watch 2017
By Guest Blogger – Nicole Tomassi
Three years ago, in an effort to bring well-deserved attention to people on the rise in the publishing industry, Publishers Weekly, working together with the Frankfurt Book Fair, created PW Star Watch.
This event seeks to identify individuals who have brought a fresh, innovative approach to the work they are doing in publishing, whether it’s production, bookselling, or any other non-executive position you can think of within publishing’s vast realm, honor their contributions, and provide them with the mentorship which will help them achieve further success within the industry.
Each year, the PW Star Watch Executive Jury selects forty semi-finalists from all the nominations received. From within this talented group, five finalists are chosen, with the name of the one who is the year’s Superstar being revealed at the PW Star Watch event. The newly named Superstar not only gets to bask in the glow of recognition from among their industry peers but is also awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to the Frankfurt Book Fair, which takes place in October.
Westchester Publishing Services realizes the importance of contributions from people who are newer to the industry. The ideas and concepts these people share are vital for the continued innovation and growth which are integral to the future viability of all aspects of the industry. We are very proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the Third Annual Publishers Weekly Star Watch and hope you can join us on Wednesday, September 6 in New York City when the next Super Star is recognized for their accomplishments.
