Formerly known as ‘Territory Read’, the biennial ‘Chief Minister’s NT Book Awards’ have celebrated the Territory’s finest literary books since 2009, raising the profile of remote, regional, First Nations and other distinct NT voices. Join creative writers and readers from all over the Territory for a memorable evening celebrating the achievements of NT authors and announcing the winners of the three categories in this prestigious award: Best Fiction, Best Non-Fiction and Best Children’s/Young Adult. Thanks to the generosity of the Northern Territory Government and the Copyright Agency Limited’s Cultural Fund, this year the winner of each category receives $10, 000.

Bookings essential.
