Welcome to the third annual whitefox Unsung Heroes of Publishing list, celebrating talented specialists working in-house or freelancing in and around our book publishing industry.

Over the course of the past few months, we’ve received nominations from across the industry, giving anyone who wanted the chance to sing the praises of their colleagues, from experienced freelancers to rising-star newbies, an opportunity to do so. Now we’ve sifted through the candidates and have come up with this year’s winners.

As we’ve said in the past years, these things are always open to interpretation and there will always be degrees of ‘unsung’. You may already be aware of some of the professionals listed below. In fact, we sincerely hope you are.

The purpose of The Unsung Heroes of Publishing is to draw attention to the people out there working hard in the publishing industry who we are sometimes in danger of taking for granted. By recognising these individuals we hope that we can continue to create a dialogue about what really matters in publishing.
