The Australian Book Designers Association (ABDA) has announced that the 2020 Australian Book Design Awards will have two prizes dedicated solely to work by student designers from around the country:
- a ‘cover’ category judged on the cover alone;
- a ‘whole book’ category judged on the cover and internal design together.
Entry fees for both student prizes will be at the reduced rate of $20 per entry.
More information will be available later in year once submissions are open, but ABDA is spreading the word now to enable design educators and course coordinators time to plan second-semester content and projects that could be eligible for entry.
Head to the Australian Book Designers Association website for more information and updates as they come to hand.
