Call for Judges in the 2016 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults
The hunt for experts in children’s literature continues! The call for judges to help decide the finalists and winners of the prestigious 2016 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults closes on October 30th.
The selected judges’ work will begin in November: calls for entry open on November 16 and the first wave of entries in the awards begins to arrive.
A total of three judges are sought and the New Zealand Book Awards Trust, which governs the awards, is confident that terrific candidates will step forward and be selected. “We’ve always been delighted by the calibre and dedication of our judges,” says Trust chair Nicola Legat. “It’s a very substantial job which involves hours of work, but they’ve always risen to the challenge because they believe in the power and importance of books and stories written by New Zealand writers for New Zealand children.”
