Teachers, librarians and booksellers – tell us what you think!

Calling all teachers, librarians and booksellers to rate your favourite educational publisher.

Now is your chance to tell us what you really think!

If you buy, sell or use textbooks or other educational resources, we want you to help decide this year’s Australian Primary and Secondary Publisher of the Year.

The Educational Publishing Awards Australia celebrate excellence and innovation in educational publishing, and who better to know which companies are doing this well than our partners in education: educators and booksellers.

Please complete this short survey to have your say about educational publishers. You will be asked to rate publishers on five areas: product quality, field services, company services, marketing and innovation. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes. The survey closes on Friday 28 June 2019 at 11:59pm AEST.

As a thank you, you will automatically go into the draw to win a $500 David Jones gift card. Your chances of winning are up from last year with the additional two Australian Book Industry

Award prize packs (a pile of new books!) also up for grabs.

The survey will ask for your email address to ensure we only receive one response per person. However the survey data is completely anonymous. The awards are organised by the Australian Publishers Association and if you have any issues, please contact gillian.haines@publishers.asn.au

Thank you for completing the survey, providing our member valuable feedback, and helping us decide the Australian Primary and Secondary educational publishers of 2019.
