The prestigious Montana New Zealand book awards for 2006 are to be judged by peers including artist Grahame Sydney.
The judging of the awards is carried out across eight categories, each with a specialist advisor to assist the judging panel. Two writers and a publisher will make up the panel, supported by eight category advisors and one Te Reo advisor, all with writing and publishing backgrounds.
This year’s advisors also boast strong writing and publishing credentials and Grahame Sydney has been selected as an advisor for the Illustrative Award.
The Art of Grahame Sydney won the Montana Medal for Non Fiction in 2000.
