This catalogue was created by The Australian Publishers Association (APA) which is the peak industry body for Australian book, journal and electronic publishers. Established in 1948, the Association is an advocate for all Australian publishers: large or small; commercial or nonprofit; academic or popular; locally or overseas owned.
The APA’s initiatives at Bologna Book Fair aim to support publishers in the promotion and sale of rights to Australian children’s books and to facilitate contact between Australian publishers and international agents and promoters. In broader terms they aim to promote Australian culture and literary culture internationally, and draw attention to and showcase the diversity and depth of Australian children’s books.
This initiative is proudly supported by Copyright Agency Limited’s (CAL) Cultural Fund.
