All our 2021 judges work in a range of Primary and Secondary schools and libraries. As a result, our judges have a wealth of knowledge to both share and inspire lovers of literature. Teachers and librarians will benefit from the judges rich experience.

  • Please note that the 2021 judges are appointed in a voluntary capacity.
  • With the majority working full time, 2021 bookings for judges talks are preferred after school hours.
  • Your request will be forwarded to our judges for consideration.
  • If no one is available we hope to be able to offer a number of experienced presenters to inspire your colleagues (i.e. past CBCA Book of the Year judges) in their place.

Please contact our office if you or your organisation wish to make a booking for one the above judges to attend your professional development seminar,
