We are pleased to announce the following Victorian judges for 2020:
Erin Wamala - Older Readers category
Karys McEwen - Older Readers category
Ruth Woolven - Younger Readers category
Marissa Caluzzi - Early Childhood category
Julie Faulkner - Picture Book/New Illustrator category
Brook Tayla - Picture Book/New Illustrator category
Melinda Allan - Eve Pownall category
All of our 2020 judges are currently working for 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.
Where possible, our judges will make themselves available for CBCA VIC Branch Judges Talks. Should you or your organisation wish to make a booking for one the above judges to attend your professional development seminar, please contact our office.
When making a booking, please note that the 2020 judges are appointed in a voluntary capacity. With the majority working full time, 2020 bookings for judges talks are preferred after school hours. We appreciate your understanding regarding the judges availability.
Your request will be forwarded to our judges for consideration. Should no one be available we hope to be able to offer a number of experienced presenters to inspire your colleagues (i.e. ex-CBCA Book of the Year judges) in their place.
Booking request forms will be available shortly.
