It is with great pleasure that we announce the 25th Educational Publishing Awards Australia (EPAA) shortlist!
Organised by the Australian Publishers Association and sponsored by Copyright Agency, the prestigious EPAAs recognise excellence and innovation within the educational publishing industry. This year’s entries are of a high standard, and are a testament to the tremendous effort that goes in to creating educational resources for Australian educators and students.
Chief Judge Angela Carbone said the entries were “exceptionally high and innovative, and the decision was not easy to make”.  In total, 117 entries were received so we would like to thank those who submitted their titles for consideration.
Many thanks to our fantastic judging panel, and, finally, a big congratulations to those shortlisted!
