Booktopia launches $5k Favourite Australian Book award
Booktopia has launched the Favourite Australian Book (FAB) award, replacing its annual Australia’s Favourite Author poll.
The author of the winning book, as determined by an online poll open to the public, will receive $5000. The longlist, selected by Booktopia staff, reflects Australian books published in 2019 that Booktopia staff ‘loved and want to champion’ across the categories of fiction, nonfiction, children’s and lifestyle.
Voting is open until 31 January and the winner will be announced on 3 February.
