Well, the judges have been hard at work looking at the over 400 entries we received this year and have come up with a longlist. There was a bit of movement in some of the categories this year – sadly there were so few entries in the Primary/Secondary and Tertiary Education categories that we were unable to proceed with these categories this year. On the other hand the response to the Student Design category was such that we are delighted to be awarding two student categories this year.
So here for your enjoyment is the 2021 Australian Book Design Awards longlist; cast your eyes over it and go read the books, buy the books and choose your favourites. And check back here soon for this year’s shortlist!
