Magabala Books is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a call for entries to the inaugural Kestin Indigenous Illustrator Award. The winner of the biennial award will receive $10,000, a mentorship and the opportunity to illustrate a children’s story by renowned author and illustrator, Sally Morgan.

Magabala Publisher, Rachel Bin Salleh, spoke about the award and her hopes for it to ‘address industry demand for Indigenous illustrators’. ‘The award will support emerging illustrators to develop their craft, and encourage Indigenous artists who haven’t illustrated before’, she said.
