List of CBCA Awards

The Children's Book Council of Australia Awards (the CBCA Awards) was started by the CBCA in 1946 with one category.cite web |title= Children's Book of the Year Awards |publisher= Children's Book Council of Australia |url= http://www.cbc.org.au/awards1.htm |accessdate= 2007-07-31] The awards have grown and now there are five categories in the Book of the Year Awards and numerous other awards presented annually by the National Office and CBCA branches in each State and Territory.

The winner of the inaugural award received a flower, "a camellia".cite web |title= History of the Awards Foundation |publisher= Children's Book Council of Australia |url= http://www.cbc.org.au/foundation.htm |accessdate= 2007-07-31] In more recent times the awards have been funded through Government grants (1966-1988), and lately by individual and corporation donations and sponsorships. The CBCA decided in 1995 to establish an Award Foundation to secure the funding for these awards for the future. ]
