The Australian Publishers Association is calling for nominations for the 2020 Pixie O’Harris Award.
The Award recognises publishers, editors, creators, booksellers, publicists and other industry representatives who have worked consistently in the field of children’s literature, demonstrated commitment beyond the call of duty, and who have developed a reputation for their contribution.
It is named in honour of children’s book author and illustrator, Pixie O’Harris (1903 – 1991), who had a longstanding career in publishing and painted many murals in hospital wards, health centres and schools.
To submit a nomination, please complete the online nomination form by Monday 10 February 2020 (5:30 pm AEDT).
Please note, previously unsuccessful nominees may be nominated again.
Any such nominations will be reconsidered based on the information submitted via the online nomination form.
Nominations are assessed by the Children’s Publishers Committee and recipients, decided by the APA Board, will be announced at the ABIA Awards Dinner in April.
