CBCA Book of The Year 2016 Shortlist

About The Book of The Year

In 1946 the CBCA established annual book awards to promote books of high literary and artistic quality. These awards are now the most influential and highly respected in Australia.

The annual CBCA Book of the Year Awards aim to:

  • promote quality literature for young Australians
  • support and encourage a wide range of Australian writers and illustrators of children's books
  • celebrate contributions to Australian children's literature

These Awards are for original books published in a given year in print format only. They must be available for purchase in Australia and be written in English. The creators must be Australian citizens or resident in Australia for at least 2 years.

The Children's Book Council of Australia Awards are for books with an implied readership under the age of eighteen.
