SCBWI Australian Picture Book Illustrator Awards

This Award is designed to support illustrators in the creation of new picture books.

For the purposes of this award, the definition of a picture book is a sequential visual narrative which is told through either illustrations and words, or through illustrations alone. This definition includes graphic novels.

There are three categories – Established, Developing and Emerging Illustrator Award with prize money to assist an illustrator with the creation of a new visual narrative picture book or graphic novel.

To be eligible, the illustrator must have been previously published by a publisher on SCBWI’s list of PAL publishers (be published by a trade publisher).

The illustrator must also be a financial member of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand or SCBWI Australia West, but there is no further application fee.

There are two Informational Zoom Webinars for those interested in submitting your work:

  • Preparing your Portfolio—15 September 2020 at 12noon (Sydney time)

  • Presenting your Portfolio and your Project—29 September 2020 at 12noon (Sydney time)

Applications close: Tuesday 1 December 2020.
