Every year the Australian Book Industry celebrates its achievements in bringing books — great Australian stories and ideas — into the world with the ABIA night of nights.


The Australian Book Industry Awards celebrate success across a range of categories within our Book Awards, Audiobook Awards and Business Awards.

Winners for the Australian Book Industry Awards are determined through a process of selection, first by our Academy of over 200 industry professionals and then a shortlist and the winners are chosen by our Judging Panels.

The awards ceremony is held in Sydney with all the stars from the industry.
