Sisters in Crime 20th Davitt Awards Night Online

26 September @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free – $10

In a special online ceremony, Val McDermid will announce the winners of the Sisters in Crime 20th Davitt Awards for the best crime books by Australian women and published in 2019.

So settle in with tasty treats and charge your glasses and mugs to celebrate and honour these writers.

The award ceremony will be available for viewing on Saturday 26 September from 8 pm AEST (6 pm in Western Australia).

Keep updated via the Sisters in Crime Facebook page, and watch via the Sisters in Crime YouTube channel, where it will be available for free worldwide viewing. However, if you would like to support Sisters in Crime and the work it does for Australian women crime writers, there are two ways you can do this:

1) Purchase a DAVITT AWARDS 2020 $10 ticket (TICKET NO. 1) ***

Three lucky ticket holders will win a $300 pack of crime books, kindly donated by the publishers, including all Davitt-winning books plus Val McDermid’s Still Life. Unfortunately, this bonus is restricted to Australian residents – international postage is just too expensive!

2) Purchase a BE IMMORTALISED IN FICTION $10 ticket (TICKET NO. 2) ***

One lucky ticket holder will have their name included in the next book written by the winner of the Davitt 2020 Award for Best Adult Crime Novel.
