indonesia international book fairIKAPI AWARDS
Every industry has its own award. It is awarded as the symbol of struggling and existence and to stimulate everyone in the industry to be more passionate.
Among those awards, entertainment and marketing are the largest for being aired live on TV, awarding shining trophy and providing red carpet. Either it is held by company or institution, aired live or off-air, giving large sums of money or only a trophy, award is still an award for the awardee. It is not only as the symbol of achievement but also an acknowledgement of self-existence. Ikatan Penerbit Indonesia (IKAPI) as non-profit association of publishers in Indonesia annually shows deep appreciation for Indonesia literacy catalysts.
Since 2010 and yet before the ‘international’ term being used in Indonesia Book Fair, IKAPI well presents highest awards for literacy catalysts known as IKAPI Award. It cannot still be considered as a prestigious award yet. It still does not have fixed category each year. However, IKAPI is fully aware that book industry which sometime ups and downs still has passionate enthusiasm for tremendous support given by large parties to promote literacy.
Thank you for dedication and sincerity, thank you for works that make readers keep their dreams alive, thank you for using good Indonesian language not merely a rigid and formal one, thank you for the thought, the idea, the insight and the good policy. IKAPI Award expresses their warmest thanks to every people involved in our large, deep ocean of Indonesia book industry.
