Last year, we started noticing trailers for new books. Well, as with all media creations (books, movies, even commercials), the book trailer industry now has its own Award!

This year marked the First Annual Moby Awards for Book Trailers. The nominees are listed here, and the winners are here.

Awards were given in separate categories for Big Budget and Low Budget Trailers, and even a category for Trailer Least Likely to Sell a Book! The award, named for the iconic white whale was created by the publisher Melville House in New York, and will consist of a trophy and bragging rights.

Here’s one I liked (not a winner though):
