Using Our Logo

Use of Our Logo & IP

The CBCA is intently focussed on its vision of being the premier voice on literature for young Australians by 2020 by informing and promoting critical debate, fostering creative responses and engaging with and encouraging Australian authors and illustrators to produce quality literature. As such we take our advocacy role and brand management seriously. To that end, the CBCA has a fee-for-use model regarding the use of our intellectual property including our CBCA logo.

If your organisation is interested in using our logo please use this form to apply. 

Completing the form and obtaining the CBCA's approval prior to your intended use ensures that your use is licensed (thereby avoiding any inadvertent trademark infringement). Secondly, it enables the CBCA to add value to your organisation by suggesting ideas for ways to partner with us on your initiatives.

Use of Our Logo by Schools and Libraries

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children's literature and you will often see book character parades and talented librarians creating amazing displays. Generally, the CBCA Book of the Year Winners announcement is the third Friday in August and CBCA Book Week commences the following day. Note: In 2020 only, CBCA Book Week will be held in October. For more information, please see our CBCA Book Week page.

Schools and libraries that wish to use the CBCA logo to promote CBCA Book Week events and activities may use do so free of charge but the logo must be used according to these Guidelines.
