"Recognizing the Daring Spirit of Independent Authors and Publishers.

For 32 years our mission at Independent Publisher has been to recognize and encourage the work of publishers who exhibit the courage and creativity necessary to take chances, break new ground, and bring about change, not only to the world of publishing, but to our society."

The Super Power Baby Project was chosen to receive this award for exemplifying this daring spirit. The  judges found the Super Power Baby Project to be the most heartfelt, unique, outspoken and experimental among almost 6,000 entries from 36 counties.


About the awards

The Attitude Awards invite everyone to acknowledge the hundreds of thousands of people who live with disability. The annual Attitude Awards, held at the Auckland Viaduct Events Centre, is a televised, spectacular black tie event where awards are presented across seven categories to people whose extraordinary talents have often not been recognised by society. The awards salute artists, sportsmen and women, people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues, young and old. They also pay tribute to the employers who work alongside people with disabilities to ensure they are able to contribute their skills to society and live full and satisfying lives.

First held in 2008 the Attitude Awards are the only national awards that celebrate achievement in the disability sector across all disabilities. The Trust aims to draw media attention to the 17% of New Zealand’s population who live with a disability and are intended to support the New Zealand Government’s objectives of a fully inclusive society.
