What is The Quilly® Award?
The Quilly® Award was founded by the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors® to commemorate an author’s achievement of being named to a nationally recognized Best-Seller list.
The Quilly® Award is exclusively distributed at the Academy’s Annual Golden Gala™ in Hollywood. This gala is a Hollywood-style, red carpet, celebration where authors can mingle and network among others who have also been able to achieve best-selling status.
Each Quilly® Award is a 14-inch commemorative gold statue that has been crafted by the same artisans who sculpt the Oscars and Emmy Awards.
No award conveys Best-Selling Author® status as recognizably and elegantly as the Quilly® Award, and it is the perfect centerpiece within an author’s display of accomplishments and awards.
About the National Academy of Best-Selling Authors®
The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors® was created by attorneys Nick Nanton and JW Dicks. Both Best-Selling Authors® themselves, they saw a need for recognition and celebration for authors who had made some of the lower visibility – yet just as important – best-seller lists. Often, they realized, unless you made a giant best-seller list like that of The New York Times, your best-selling author status may not get much attention. This is something they aimed to change and change it they did! The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors® now annually recognizes best-selling authors® from many categories and lists – including many independent lists – across many different genres. This is done at the Annual Golden Gala′ in Hollywood as mentioned above. This is where the best-selling authors® receive their Quilly® Award from the Academy.
