The enhanced ebook of Dan and Phil Go Outside has been shortlisted for a FutureBook award – and we couldn’t be more excited! These awards are the most prestigious in the U.K. for digital products and ebooks. The category we’ve been shortlisted for is the FutureBook Book of the Year – Children’s. Entries demonstrated innovation; design and usability; discoverability, and a strong audience connection.
The ebook has accumulated glowing 5-star reviews on Apple – as user Alistarrr wrote, ‘This is one of the best e-books! … Having their voices guide you through the book generally made it a funnier thing to read!’ The publishing team also organised live events to promote the ebook, where Dan and Phil went on stage with an iPad specifically talking about the enhancements. Check out one of the events here, where a cup of tea almost ruins the whole event!
The winner will be announced on Friday 1st December 2017, at the FutureBook Conference in London. Whatever the outcome, we are extremely proud to be shortlisted amongst other examples of innovative digital publishing and look forward to bringing you more projects like this next year!
