CBCA Vic's Clayton's Night is under way - 19th March, 2019!
It is held prior to the official CBCA Short List Announcement and is a night full of fun, laughter and delicous food.
Guest judges are asked to look at the entries for BOTY Awards and pick their personal favourites. They don’t have any correspondence with the official judges, and their selections are strictly their own.
Each guest judges only presents books from one of the six national categories: the three age-based categories – Older Readers, Younger Readers and Early Childhood – and the three general categories – Picture Book, Eve Pownall and New Illustrator.
Guest judges are chosen from a variety of library and book-related occupations and enthusiasts and change every year.
The 2019 Clayton’s Night will held at Trinity Grammar School, Kew.
Meg Moores (CBCA Vic Secretary & Convenor of this event) makes the People’s Choice Booklet, available for all to view.
This event is also the platform we announce the winner of the Leila St John Award - Who will receive this honour this year?
