ABDA is thrilled to present the longlist for the 69th Australian Book Design Awards. Please join us in celebrating the bravest and brightest, the most original and beautiful books published in Australia in 2020.

The shortlist will be announced in April 2021 and the winners of the Australian Book Design Awards will be announced at a Digital Awards Ceremony later this year. We hope you will be able to join us then.

And stay tuned for details on how to vote for the Designers’ Choice Awards soon.

Category update: due to exceptionally low entries, the Best Designed Primary/Secondary and Tertiary Education Book awards will not be presented this year. We hope that they will return in 2022. However, the response to the Student Design category was such that we are delighted to award two student categories this year.
