Grand Prize Winners and First Place Winners for the Chanticleer International Book Awards 2017

We are excited and honored to announce the 2017 Winners of the Chanticleer International Book Awards. The winners were recognized at the fifth annual Chanticleer Authors Conference and Awards Banquet Ceremony on Saturday, April 21, 2018, at the Hotel Bellwether, Bellingham, Wash.

We want to thank all of the authors who participated in the 2017 Chanticleer Book Awards. Each year, we find the quality of the entries and the competitiveness of the division competitions increasing exponentially, which is why the contest judges wanted to add Shortlisters as a way to recognize and validate the entries that were not selected for the very few First Place Award positions within each genre division.

Photographs of the Award Winners taken by professional photographer Dwayne Rogge at the banquet and ceremony will be posted on this page before May 31, 2018. Please do check back!

We have more information that is pertinent to the 2017 Book Award Winners and Shortlisters at the end of this post. Please scroll down.
