Ena Noel Award 2020

Por Mylee J — 2 de Abril de 2020, 06:00

The Ena Noel Award is the IBBY Australia Encouragement Award for a young emerging writer or illustrator. The panel of judges is pleased to announce that the 2020 winner is:

Jack Heath for 500 Minutes of Danger (Scholastic Australia).

This is a collection of ten short ​action stories featuring children as they face dangers that push them physically, emotionally and intellectually. As each story is told, a more complex mystery unfolds which eventually links the stories together in a final climactic ending. The stories are a mixture of fantasy, sci-fi and adventure but also contain more diverse themes including Indigenous culture as well as the environment. These are fast-paced plots written by an author who does not talk down to readers. In some stories children are selected by adults to undertake dangerous missions, others find courage deep within to protect their families or friends. Each short story provides thrilling adventures that children will want to read, with the added tension of stories intended to be read in real time with a countdown adding to the suspense.

Jack Heath is the author of many novels for children and adults. His books have been translated into eight languages and adapted for film. He started writing his first book in high school submitting it to a publisher at age 17. He has visited hundreds of schools around Australia and New Zealand sharing his love of reading and writing.

The judges note that it was a pleasure to receive and read such a diverse selection of titles from Australias emerging writers and illustrators for children and young adults.

Congratulations to Jack Heath and the publishers of 500 Minutes of Danger.

The Ena Noël Award has been a significant identifier of talented emerging writers and illustrators since its inception in 1994. Thank you to all the publishers who entered books by young creators for this award. IBBY Australia is pleased to make this announcement to coincide with International Children’s Book Day (ICBD) 2020.

IBBY Australia Honour List books address pressing cultural issues

Por Mylee J — 29 de Setembro de 2019, 11:54

IBBY Australia proudly announces its selection of two books to be included in the biennial IBBY Honour List for 2020. One highlights Indigenous history and the environment, and the other, the experiences of a teenage asylum seeker. Every two years an Advisory Panel of three children’s literature experts makes the selection, and these outstanding books become Australia’s representatives in a travelling exhibition of international titles. The 2020 exhibition will be featured at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, at the IBBY Congress in Moscow and in many other countries.

For Writing: Between Us by Clare Atkins, pub. Black Inc.
Is it possible for two teenagers to fall in love despite their separation by barbed-wire fences and great cultural differences? Anahita, an Iranian asylum seeker, is allowed out of an internment camp near Darwin only to attend school; her mother is expecting a new baby. Ana is clever and sensitive but has witnessed and suffered great violence. At school she meets Jono, who lives with his Vietnamese ‘boat person’ single father, Kenny, whose new job as a guard at the Detention Centre makes him mistrustful. Each narrator tells their story in the first person, and the characterisation is nuanced. Events build to a seemingly inevitable crisis. This book is timely in its dealing with themes of migration, prejudice towards outsiders, the yearning for freedom, and a relationship built through such links as shared music, and despite many barriers, cultural and systemic.

Clare Atkins’ debut novel, Nona & Me, won the 2016 Book of the Year in the Northern Territory Literary Awards, and was shortlisted for the 2015 Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards, longlisted for the 2015 Inky Awards, and highly commended for the 2015 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. Clare has worked as a scriptwriter for many successful television series, including All Saints and Home and Away. In Between Us she has told a powerful tale, which includes understanding gained as a volunteer visiting detainees in a Detention Centre.

For Illustration: Wilam: A Birrarung Story illustrated by Lisa Kennedy, text by Aunty Joy Murphy and Andrew Kelly, pub. Black Dog Books (Walker Books Australia)

This landscape-format picture book starts with the perspective of Bunjil the wedgetailed eagle, as it soars above Birrarung, the Yarra River. Elements of modern Melbourne appear, but the natural world is the centre of celebration in this pageant of flora and fauna. The book traces the river from its source to its mouth, from dawn to dusk, and from pre-history to the present day. The artist uses luminous acrylics to highlight yellow gum-blossom sprays, possums and black cockatoos. We see creatures which are usually hidden, such as the dulai-wurrung (platypus). Curved lines and shapes represent the sky and the underground world; blue and brown patterned bands are decorated with stars, dots and zigzagging, diamond or rainbow shapes. Birds, leaves and ferns create a stylised effect, with myriad elements in these richly-detailed spreads for readers to explore. Art and bilingual text combine to show the river sustaining all its creatures: it is wilam or home.

Lisa Kennedy is a descendant of the Trawlwoolway People on the north-east coast of Tasmania. Lisa was born in Melbourne and as a child lived close to the Maribyrnong River. Here she experienced the gradual restoration of the natural river environment alongside cultural regeneration and reclamation. Through sense of place she feels connected to the Wurundjeri country and all that entails — the water, the land, the animals and the ancestors. The experience of loss and reclamation is embedded in her work. Lisa Kennedy and Aunty Joy Murphy created Welcome to Country in 2016,winner of several awards including the Environment Award for Children’s Literature.
