Head of the University of Wales Press, Helgard Krause, receives the award for Best Design and Production
The University of Wales Press have been awarded the Best Design and Production award for their celebrated title, Cerddi Dafydd ap Gwilym by Professor Dafydd Johnston, in this year’s Publishing Trade Awards ceremony.
The publishing trade awards are presented every two years, and this year the ceremony coincided with the Welsh Books Council’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
During the ceremony, 18 different awards were presented, including categories for best-selling titles and most popular library books, in addition to recognising the best in the fields of design and production.
This year, for the first time, an additional award category was added, namely for design and production in the field of English and Welsh-language books.
The specially commissioned trophies – as can be seen in the photograph, overhead - were designed by Carwyn Evans, the Cardiff-based artist, winner of the Fine Arts Prize at the National Eisteddfod in 2009.
