The Australian Book Designers Association (ABDA) has introduced its first student membership.

Available to full-time and part-time students studying graphic or communication design in Australia, the student membership is priced at $25 for a year, which is half the price of a regular membership.

Members receive discounts to ABDA events, including workshops and networking events.

ABDA president Mark Campbell says by offering the student membership, ABDA is ‘hoping to meet and encourage the next generation of Australian book designers’.

ABDA has also announced that the winners presentation for 2019 Australian Book Design Awards will be held at the State Library of New South Wales on 31 May. The shortlists for the award will be announced on 8 April. For more information, see the ABDA website.
