The Liberisliber Prizes aim to acknowledge the heroic task carried out every day by independent publishers, something only understandable through its boundless devotion to literature, the art of publishing and knowledge. That is why each year the fair organizers choose four titles which, according to the jury of the corresponding year, meet the values governing the fair itself, namely, the quality, the heterodoxy, the courage and the ability to combine all the former with that of reaching the widest possible audience. The prizes are distributed in five categories:
- Liberisliber Xic Imago Prize (Children’s Books and Young Adult Fiction: emphasis on the image)
- Liberisliber Xic Textus Prize (Children’s Books and Young Adult Fiction: emphasis on the text)
- Liberisliber Pensa Prize (non-Fiction)
- Liberisliber Lira Prize (Poetry)
- Liberisliber Prize (Fiction)

Apart from these prizes committed to books already published, Liberisliber supports a different prize for authors who have never been published before: the Francesc Garriga Poetry Prize (unpublished authors).
