 About the Awards

The awards are designed to encourage the publication of accurate, balanced children’s materials on Africa, to recognise literary excellence and to acknowledge the research achievements of outstanding authors and illustrators. Collectively CABA winners show that Africa is indeed a varied and multifaceted continent. CABA titles expand and enrich our perspectives of Africa beyond the stereotypical, ahistorical and exotic images that are emphasised in the West.

Awards Committee
The Awards Committee is composed of African Studies and Children’s Literature scholars. Nominated titles are read by committee members and reviewed by external African Studies scholars with specialised academic training.
