Chocolate Dragonfly Contest Offers Sweet Rewards

"Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so."


CHANDLER, AZ – Hot on the tale of the successful launch of the Purple and Royal Dragonfly Book Awards comes the unveiling of the most delectable contest of them all: the Chocolate Dragonfly Book Awards, which honors the very best in food-related literature – fiction and nonfiction.

There are 40 categories for book entries including cookbooks, diet and nutrition, food history, fictional books that revolve around food, travel books that focus on food, dining guides and many more. As with all other Dragonfly Book Awards contests, there is no restriction on publication date as long as the books entered are still available for purchase. Entries from across the globe are welcome as long as they are submitted in English.

"Our judges are industry experts with specific knowledge about the categories over which they preside," says Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the company sponsoring the Chocolate Dragonfly Book Awards. "A Chocolate Dragonfly seal on a book's cover tells foodies they are not only in possession of a book that appeals to their specific taste in reading, but one that is also worthy of praise in literary circles."

One grand-prize winner is selected from all first-place winners to receive $300, and all first-place winners of each category go into a drawing for a $100 prize. In addition, each first-place winner in each category receives a certificate commemorating their accomplishment, foil award seals to place on book covers and mention on Five Star Publications' websites. A publicity campaign announces all winners and first-place recipients are placed in the Five Star Dragonfly Book Awards virtual bookstore. In addition to the aforementioned, the grand prize winner receives one hour of marketing consultation from Five Star Publications and $100 worth of Five Star Publications' titles. Second-place titles are recognized, too. Although the deadline to enter is August 1, 2011, entries postmarked June 1, 2011 or earlier qualify for the Early Bird Special and receive their choice of award-winning e-book: "The Economical to Guide to Self-Publishing" or "Promote like a Pro."

The Chocolate Dragonfly Book Awards are part of the family of Five Star Dragonfly Book contests, which includes the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards, honoring literary excellence in 50 categories; Purple Dragonfly Book Awards, which recognizes exceptional children's literature and will announce its winners at the November 6, 2010 Arizona Author's Association banquet in Phoenix; the Dragonfly eBook Awards, saluting exceptional eBooks and to be launched later this year; and the Green Dragonfly Book Awards, which rewards books that create awareness of the environment and eco-friendly living.
