The Junior Secondary Student Resource category has by far the largest number of submissions, and of the 36 entries this year almost 70% include a digital component to look at alongside the print. Two of our panel of professionals gamely rolling up their sleeves and delving through this impressive array of publications are first-time judges Melanie Napthine and Alicia Brown.
Linda Kowarzik has been an EPAAs judge for the past five years and has chaired the Secondary panel for two. We spoke to her about her experience judging the work of her peers and what the awards mean to her for the next installment of our Meet the Judges series.
In our next Meet the Judges article we talk to the last (but not least) Primary sector judge, Carmel Heron, and one of our Secondary sector judges, Daniel Aspinall, both seasoned judges for the EPAAs.
Continuing our Meet the Judges series, Primary sector judges Sabine Bolick and Rebecca Henson took some time out from their judging duties to tell us a bit about themselves.
The Educational Publishing Awards are judged by a panel of highly experienced publishing professionals. In the build up to the shortlist announcement, we’ll be introducing you to the people diligently reviewing the huge number of entries this year. In this, the first edition of our Meet the Judges series, we interview Primary sector judges Peter Stannard and Kate McGough.
