THE PUBLISHING CLIMATE

Bridget Williams Books is an outstanding publisher of New Zealand non-fiction.

In 2015 BWB won the NZ Book Industry Special Award. "Bridget Williams Books wins this for their innovative list, and how effectively they have embraced the new digital age. They have proven their commitment to quality non-fiction publishing, publishing the important Tangata Whenua, while launching their new imprint BWB Texts over 2014," said Carolyn Morgan, one of the five judges.

In 2016 Tangata Whenua: An Illustrated History won the Illustrated Non-Fiction Award at the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. BWB’s numerous award-winning books focus on New Zealand history, Māori history, women’s issues and contemporary topics.
