BooktubeSFF Awards
2020 Winners

The 2020 BooktubeSFF Awards winners were revealed during the #BooktubeSFF Awards Liveshow on August 30.

Booktube is the segment of YouTube dominated by booklovers who use the platform to discuss and share our love of reading. SFF stands for Science Fiction and Fantasy, and the BooktubeSFF community are those of us within Booktube who focus our reading on those genres. The BooktubeSFF community isn’t just limited to people who make videos, it’s everyone who watches, comments, and loves SFF!

The judges and public voted separately on the shortlist (public voting ended August 29) and if they picked different books in a given category, two winners were crowned.
