Excellence in Editing Award

It takes a team to produce a well-written and well-edited book! Because Christian Editor Connection wants to honor the teams behind such books, CEC proudly sponsored the Excellence in Editing Award for seven years.

After announcing the winners of the 2022 Excellence in Editing Award at the PENCON editors’ conference in May, we also announced that we were changing the name of this contest to the Editors’ Choice Award. We believe this better reflects the spirit of this award: to celebrate newly released books, published by a Christian publisher or self-published by a Christian author, that are so well written and well edited that even a professional editor would enjoy reading them!

The Excellence in Editing award has been sponsored by Christian Editor Connection since its inception. It is now sponsored by Christian Editor Association, the parent organization for CEC as well as The Christian PEN: Proofreaders and Editors Network, The PEN Institute, and PENCON.

For information about the Editors’ Choice Award, including submission details, please visit www.christianeditorsassociation.com/ECA. If you wrote, edited, or published a book that was released last year, we hope you will consider entering it into the Editors’ Choice Award.
