This post consists of a message from Jackie Hawkes - for The Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) NSW
Hi All - For your consideration -
The position for NSW Book Week Judge for the Book Week 2014 - 2015 period is now open to members of the Children's Book Council of Australia - NSW Branch.
New judges will be reading for the winners of the 2014 and 2015 Book Week Awards.
CBCA Judge: Role and responsibilities
It is an amazing and demanding job, which this year included reading and annotating around 500 books as submitted by publishers for the Book Of the Year considerations in the categories of Younger Readers, Older Readers, Picture Book, Early Childhood and the Eve Pownall Information Book. A team of judges from each of the states shares the decision making process, though at this stage all judges read all books submitted.
If you are interested or know of someone who may be, you are certainly encouraged to check out further information on the CBCA NSW details under the heading of Book Week.
Happy LOTS of reading -
