Aurealis Awards

Just three weeks until the Aurealis Awards


It’s time to start getting excited! Plan your bling (if you’re dressing up) or buy up your hair gel (if you’re going to come in mid-90s glam).

Ceremony MC Margo Lanagan is going to be reading excerpts from the 1995 Aurealis Award winners as part of the ceremony. It’s going to be fascinating to see what differences have developed over the past 20 years (the covers are certainly very different). Margo is a wonderful reader of words (as well as being a pretty good writer of them) and they are sure to be a highlight of the evening.

It all starts at 7pm with a cocktail reception – note we’ve just got some nibblies available, so make sure you have something to eat before you come. The ceremony will begin at 8pm.

Following, we’ll be adjourning to Novotel Canberra to continue the celebrations.

Don’t have your tickets yet? You can purchase them online here until Friday 10 April. However you’ll be able to purchase tickets at the door as well. Tickets cost $50.

I look forward to seeing you all in Canberra on 11 April.
