The Catholic Publishers Trade Show featured around 100 exhibitors and thousands of books and was held for the 26th time.
The central event of the fair was a gala on Saturday during which the Association of Catholic Publishers awards - Feniks 2021 - were presented. The ceremony took place in the Field Cathedral of the Polish Army in Warsaw.
A special award went to the public broadcaster Polish Radio for three publications: “1920: The Battle that Saved Europe,” “President of the Republic of Poland Lech Kaczyński – a testimony” and “Smoleńsk - the last mission.”
The award “confirms that Polish Radio is an important witness of national history over the last century,” the organizers said.
Over 250 entries in 19 categories were submitted this year for the Phoenix Award, which has been given since 1999 to the creators of outstanding works promoting Christian values.
The annual fair also included events such as meetings with writers and panel discussions, in addition to book launches.
About 93 percent of Poles declare themselves to be Catholics, according to statistics released by church officials several years ago.
Public broadcaster Polish Radio was a media partner of the trade show, which was held at Warsaw's Royal Castle.
