While its authors, illustrators and publishers that are stage centre at the New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, at the end of the day it’s all about the kids. That’s why we were delighted that Children’s Commissioner, Dr John Angus was able to be the keynote speaker at the Awards in Auckland.
New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards Ceremony 2010
Fluffy clouds and high flying pastel balloons as table centrepieces set the ‘power of the imagination’ theme for this year’s New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards 2010. It was an elegant setting with guests sitting around tables, but as always the warmth of the children’s literature community gave the event a friendly atmosphere.
Judges for the New Zealand Post Book Awards are selected from nominations put forward by a range of literary and book trade organisations with an interest in children's literature. Wherever possible one of the judges will be a practising writer.
