The Manila Critics Circle

 
 

The National Book Awards

Every year since 1982, the Circle has given the National Book Awards to the best books written, designed, and published in the Philippines.

In addition, the Circle also gives Special Awards to outstanding publishers or publishing projects and Citations for outstanding achievement in special categories.

In 1995 and 1996, the awarding ceremonies were telecast over PTV.

No book written or edited by a member is eligible to win a National Book Award; instead, the Circle gives Members' Awards to its members who publish books.
