The Children's Book Council of Australia

The Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation dedicated to engaging the community with literature for young Australians. The CBCA believes in the transformative power of stories and endeavors to connect, communicate, celebrate, and advocate for their value across generations. Established in 1945, their mission is to enrich young lives through Australian stories and inspiring a thriving creative world. Working in partnership with authors, illustrators, publishers, and booksellers, the CBCA hosts annual book awards that have become the most influential and highly respected in Australia. They also organise Children's Book Week to celebrate books and Australian authors and illustrators in schools and public libraries.
