Gecko Press wins 2017 NZ Publisher of the Year

Gecko Press has won Nielsen Publisher of the Year at the 2017 Book Industry Awards. A big thank you to all of our supporters!

Earlier this year we kickstarted the Curiously Good Book Club, an initiative that embraces and encourages collaboration across booksellers, publishers and readers.  In this spirit, we were proud to be among good company at the awards, and to hear the strength of this industry celebrated. The judges said

The New Zealand book industry can rest assured there is much innovation and inspiration to be found in New Zealand publishing and bookselling. It would be difficult to find a more dedicated, hard-working and passionate group of individuals and organisations, than those that are collectively keeping books and literature at the forefront of NZ’s creative taonga

Congratulations to all!
