The CBCA has a new outlook!
As part of our 70th year celebrations we have a fresh look which acknowledges our place in the Australian children's literary landscape.
AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENTS 2016
The Children's Book Council is pleased to announce a slight change in the Awards announcement procedures for 2016. As most of you will know, next year is the 70th anniversary of the first award and in that time the way the awards are judged and announced has changed many times. That's what makes them dynamic, responsive to change and relevant.
Next year, immediately following the judges' meeting, we will announce our Notables (or long list, as other awards call such a list); at the CBCA conference in May, we will announce the Short List and then in August the winners and honour books will be announced. This will keep up the momentum of interest and excitement, give libraries and schools three points of focus and help to promote Australian children's literature across a number of months.
So, for your diaries:
Notables announcement April 18
Short List announcement May 20
Award Winners announcement August 19
Thank you all for your support of our work in promoting literature for young Australians.
