- It cannot be a previous winner
- In each category, the award is for a specific title, not for a book series
- You can nominate more than one book but no more than 3.
Bilby Readership Categories
- Early Readers - Picture Books and story books for readers under 8 years old
- Younger Readers – for books for readers between 8 and 12 years old
- Older Readers – for books for readers 13+
In the Nomination phase, children are invited to nominate their favourite individual book for their readership category which they have read in the previous 12 months. Nominations are to be made on-line through the dedicated nomination pages that will be provided. Please read the nomination conditions carefully. Nominations close March 31st.
This begins the Voting phase. It may take a couple of days to load the voting pages but children are encouraged first to read all of the books in the short list for their readership category. This can be in print, audio or digital format, or as a read-aloud. Then children vote for their favourite book from the short list using the dedicated on-line voting pages that will be provided at the time.
