Well, it’s Official!
The 2019 Australian Book Industry Awards are set to take place in Sydney, at the International Convention Centre, Thursday - May 2nd, 2019.
Yes, it will be wonderful. Yes, it will be exciting! Yes, there will be an element of anticipation! Yes, there will be happy winners and wine to drown your sorrows, if you happened to miss out. But most of all, you’ll have to ‘book’ 😊 if you want in, on all this fun and glory!
It is the publishers’ night of nights where authors, illustrators, publishers, and the myriad of individuals involved in the creation of award-winning books come to pay homage to the very best book creatives out there.
Australia showcases some of the finest publishers in the Southern Hemisphere – publishing more than 7000 titles each year! That’s an astonishing $2 billion dollars’ worth of revenue!
It is because of these wonderful people that our libraries are full, and our children are literate!
It is anyone’s guess who might win as the categories are many and the talent is extraordinary.
Stay tuned! Nominations will open SOON - January 15th, 2019.
This is going to be an awesome year!
