The May 5-8, 2020 “Shelter-In-Place” IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards Ceremony watch parties were a grand success! Over 500 people registered for the events to celebrate the best in independent publishing, and each evening was full of laughs in the livestream chat, as well as in the acceptance speeches themselves. You can see all the acceptance speeches and the videos announcing the winners by clicking any of the categories on this page.

One of the most fun (and creative!) aspects of the each event was the social media posted by the attendees. Each night, the person who posted the best social media as won a complimentary IBPA membership. See below for the winners from each night, and an entertaining taste of the other posts throughout each evening:

This corgi was the Tuesday, May 5th winner

These horses were the Wednesday, May 6th winners

Tamara Dever was the Thursday, May 7th winner

Eric Meade was the Friday, May 8th winner

And the runners up!...
