Most Beautiful Books Australia & New Zealand. Call for entries 2013!

The Most Beautiful Books Australia & New Zealand (‘MBBANZ’) award program has been established to recognise innovation and excellence in book design and publishing in Australia and New Zealand. This biennial award program welcomes entries of all types, but the program seeks to emphasise the most innovative contemporary book design and publishing activity in Australia and New Zealand, including titles from independent and small press publishers. Importantly, the program seeks to minimise barriers to entry: there are no entry fees, and books may be nominated for consideration not only by designers and publishers, but also by readers and collectors.

MBBANZ2013 invites entries that have been published in the calendar years of 2011 and 2012, for review by an independent jury of local and international experts in the field –

Peter Corrigan
James Langdon
Warren Taylor
Layla Tweedie-Cullen
Denise Whitehouse

The awards program will be accompanied by talks and lectures by jury members at the State Library of Victoria, with the shortlisted publications announced and exhibited at MADA Gallery, a part of Monash Art Design and Architecture, Melbourne.
