The Taipei Book Fair Foundation yesterday announced the winners of its annual awards, with graphic novels simultaneously receiving top honors in the fiction and nonfiction categories for the first time.

Ahead of the Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) each year, the foundation unveils the winners of its TIBE Book Prizes, as well as the Golden Butterfly Awards for book design.

This year’s exhibition was held online for the first time after the event was postponed from January to May, and then canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The TIBE Book Prizes — for fiction, nonfiction, children’s literature, young adults’ literature, and editing — recognize Chinese-language works that were published for the first time in Taiwan between Nov. 1 last year and Sept. 30.    [FULL  STORY]
