About Our Auction

Our aim is to raise vital funds for administration and management of the Australian Children’s Laureate Program. It’s widely known how successful this program has become, supported by all-important funding from the Australia Council and the Copyright Agency. For the program to continue to grow, we must secure ongoing funding.

In this auction there are 25 fabulous treasures for you to bid on, generously donated by creators of children’s books, and featuring four from laureates Morris Gleitzman, Leigh Hobbs and Alison Lester.

About Australian Children's Laureate Foundation

The Australian Children’s Laureate is an honour awarded to an acclaimed Australian creator of children’s and youth literature who has made a significant contribution to the children’s literature canon of this country.
The Laureate is appointed on a biennial basis by the Australian Children’s Laureate Foundation (ACLF) whose aim, through administering the Laureate Program, is to promote the transformational power that reading, creativity and story can have in the lives of young Australians and therefore the future of our nation.
Over a two-year term each Laureate develops a unique project, based on their own interests and passions, that carries this important message to communities across Australia and Internationally.
