The India division of the Canada-based Ukiyoto Publishing, a traditional publisher always committed to quality content and finding talented new authors across the globe, has given away the Literary Awards-Q2 of 2022 in various categories of fiction and non-fiction in Kolkata on 24th July. As per Ukiyoto India announcement at the event around 1500 applications were received from various parts and various regional languages of India out of which around 100 were selected for the different awards, based on the parameters of selection adopted by their panel of judges.


This writer is very proud of finding himself among the awardees. His book of humorous short stories titled ‘The Cheerless Chauffeur and Other Tales’ has earned him the prestigious ‘Emerging Author of the Year—Fiction’ in the Literary Awards-2022 event which was organized as a part of Ukiyoto’s Kolkata Chapter at Vivanta by Taj. Solstice, the marketing wing of Ukiyoto India, has displayed all the books of the awardee authors at the venue during the full-day highly attended event. The vibrant presence of several authors of the young generation has, in a way, vindicated the commitment of Ukiyoto to find new and newer talented writers across India, apart from its quest in various other countries of the world too. The major awards include ‘The Author of the Year in Fiction and non-Fiction’, ‘The Best 30 books to look out for in 2022’, ‘The Poet of the Year’ and many other categories.
