Karajia and Environment Awards for Children’s Literature 2023

Submissions for both the world’s longest running children’s nature book award, the Wilderness Society’s Environment Award for Children’s Literature (EACL), and the Karajia Award for Children’s Literature are now open. Established in 1994, the EACL celebrates Australian books written for children that promote a love of and care for nature, and recognises the important role that authors’ and illustrators’ creativity has played in inspiring future generations across the categories of picture fiction, non-fiction and fiction. The Karajia Award for Children’s Literature, established in 2022, sits alongside the EACL and is awarded to a book that celebrates a connection to Country and stories exploring land, community, culture and language by a First Nations author or illustrator. 
Submissions for both awards close 1 March; learn more and submit.
