Dear friends of CAREER 

We are pleased to share a recent achievement of CAREER Publications. Co-founder of our organisation Mr.Nishad Deshmukh has been awarded as Indian Young Publishing Entrepreneur by British Council, India. As a part of this award Mr.Deshmukh will be representing India for International Young Publishing Entrepreneur Award 2009.
Please find copied below official press note of British Council, India. Also, following is the link for detailed news of the award http://www.careerandyou.com/newadmin/userfiles/News - International Young Publishing Entrepreneur Award.doc for detailed news of the award. Further details can be viewed at http://www.britishcouncil.org/india-arts-iypey2007.htm.

Briefly, the award entails a 10 days UK tour in April 2009 concurrent with London Book Fair, where Nishad will compete with 9 other publishers for the International Young Publisher of the Year Award. The interactions with UK publishers during the tour would be  very useful.

In India 5 publishers were short-listed for the presentation and interviews at Kolkata. This award surely is a recognition for independent (small / medium publishing houses) publishers focusing on niche subjects. As you all aware that we specalise ourselves in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences.  Now its our responsibility to excel in our publishing programmes.

We look forward to receive continued support in the future too.
 
With kind regards 
Entire CAREER Team

                  Press Release
Nashik publisher at International Young Publishing Entrepreneur Award 2009, UK, in April 2009
Nishad Deshmukh of Nashik has been selected as the Indian finalist for Indian Young Publishing Entrepreneur 2009 Award. This award is part of British Council's worldwide work in promoting the creative industries, of which publishing is an integral part. The award is run in association with Oxford Bookstores.
Having graduated from Pune University, Nishad worked in marketing for a few years before he quit to become an entrepreneur. "There was no previous history of entrepreneurship in my family but today I can proudly say that there is no handicap associated with being a first generation entrepreneur, "he said. In 2000, he set up a publishing house CAREER Publications in an office space of less than 80 sq ft and absolutely no assistance. Today, they operate with 42 employees with a 2700 sq ft  office and an additional branch office of 600 sq ft.
The winner of the Indian award gets an all-expenses paid 10-day trip to the UK in April 2009, to compete for the title of the International Young Publishing Entrepreneur Award 2009, which includes a cash prize of £5000 towards the publishing proposition approved by the paneland a free stall at the London Book Fair 2010, in addition to the opportunity for networking with UK publishers.
The award was judged by Mandira Sen, Stree Publications, S Anand, Navayana Publishing, S.K Ghai, Chair, Book Division, Capexil and Debanjan Chakrabarti, Head, Inter Cultural Dialogue, British Council, India.
The judges commended Nishad by saying "Nishad Deshmukh has identified a gap in the market, founded a company in Nashik, a small town in Maharashtra, which has grown to doing business with international players in the field. A thorough publishing professional, he has the potential to lead an independent imprint focused on science, technology and medicine, to emerge as a global force. "
The Young Creative Entrepreneur (YCE) Award programme forms the core of the Creative Future Network. It is unique in that it rewards the talent and initiative of young creative entrepreneurs from across the creative industries recognising the central role they play in the development of a competitive and sustainable creative economy.
