Australian Book Industry Awards 2024

Celebrate the exceptional talent and creativity in the Australian publishing industry at the Australian Book Industry Awards, taking place in Melbourne on 9 May 2024.

The Awards recognise excellence and innovation from the teams and individuals across the industry who get books into the hands of readers – from the authors and illustrators to publishers, editors, marketers and booksellers.


This is the biggest event on the publishing calendar, being celebrated in Australia’s cultural hub – you won’t want to miss out!

The 2024 Awards Ceremony

The 2024 awards will be held on the evening of Thursday 9 May at Zinc Fed Square, in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.

This year we’re celebrating in style at Zinc Fed Square in Victoria's City of Literature. Expect a gala dinner, with time for drinks, music and mingling, plus of course all the winner announcements!
