Congratulations to our 3 winners, Hannah, Musey and Rose. Your wonderful art will be used by CBCSA throughout the year. You will be contacted about your prize vouchers.
'Twas the night before the announcement of the Shortlist, and five brave presenters explored the Notables, evaluated, argued and were brave enough to present their predictions and dilemmas in front of other children's literature aficionados.
Fueled by refreshments, the audience also had the chance to browse and buy selected books from the Notables at a pop-up book shop by our sponsor St Georges Books. Another highlight was the announcement and unveiling of the winners in our Book Week "Find Your Treasure" poster competition.
How did the presenters go? Not as well as they hoped, (about 50%), but more aware of the difficulties the judges face, and still prepared to defend their selections! Members can view the presentations on The Members Only page of the website.
Congratulations to the fabulous South Australian authors, illustrators and publishers recognised on the CBCA Notables list.
It is fantastic to see Allayne Webster, Charlie Archbold, Rosanne Hawke, Mem Fox, Mike Dumbleton, Phil Cummings (3 nominations), Katrina Germein, Amanda Graham, Mike Lucas, Jennifer Harrison, Vikki Wakefield, Sally Heinrich, Jane Jolly, and Midnight Sun Publishing recognised and wish them all the best for the Short List.
