Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA)

The Australian Book Industry Awards (known as the ABIAs) is the Australian trade publishers’ annual industry award night.

The ABIAs recognise and celebrate outstanding books from across the sector, and the publishers and campaigns that brought them to market.

Books published in the previous year are submitted by publishers and considered by the judging panel across categories for children’s, adult, fiction and non-fiction.

The ABIAs also include awards for Publisher of the Year, and individual recognition of publishing professionals through induction into the Hall of Fame.

Entries open annually around January with the event typically held in Sydney mid-year.

Visit the ABIA website for more information, and sign up for updates through the email preferences on your profile page.
