Nominations wanted for the Katrine Harries Award

Nominations awaited for the Katrine Harries Award for Children's Book Illustrations

The Katrine Harries Award, originally the only and most prestigious award in South Africa for children's book illustrations, but which has been dormant for the past ten years, will again be awarded from this year. Protea Boekhuis has agreed to sponsor the award on a permanent basis. This year the award will be made for books published during 2006-2007.

Since 1999 the Children's Literature Research Unit (CLRU) of Unisa, who is responsible for the Award, has tried without success to secure award sponsors for the books published during this period (1999-2005). Lapa Publishers has now agreed to sponsor one award (2004-2006). The CLRU hopes to find two additional sponsors so that four awards can be made. This promises to be a special occasion, having three or four of South Africa's best illustrators together on the podium.

As was traditionally the case, the Award will be made biennially for children's book illustrations by a South African illustrator. It includes books by South African illustrators resident in South Africa or abroad, irrespective of where their books have been published.

Publishers, illustrators and all interested parties are herewith invited to nominate books with illustrations made by a South African illustrator published in the period:


Please send your nominations asap to:
Thomas van der Walt
CLRU, Dept of Information Science, PO Box 382, 0003 UNISA

The Katrine Harries Award was awarded for the first time in the early 1960's by the SA Library Association, later the South African Institute for Library and Information Science (SAILIS).It has been awarded to some of South Africa's most well-known illustrators: Katrine Harries personally received the award twice before it was named after her. Thereafter Niki Daly, Joan Rankin, Alida Bothma, Cora Coetzee, Jeremy Grimsdell (and others) have received it with Jude Daly finally receiving it in 1997 for Gift of the Sun. With the disbandment of SAILIS, the new library organisation, LIASA, was not interested in continuing with awards. The SAILIS Board requested the Children's Literature Research Unit to find new homes for the SAILIS awards. The CLRU did not succeed in finding a home for the award with the exception of 1997-98 when the magazine, Baba en Kleuter, sponsored the award - Jude Daly won it for The Stone.

The awards, 9-carat gold medals, will be made at a gala-evening in March
2008 during the University of Pretoria Book Festival.

It truly is a truism that the esablished
order is self-supporting and resists change. TEDx has certainly turn out
to be mainstream and established. A brand name
name which has a (well deserved, I feel) reputation
of cutting edge intellectual exposure to protect.
The (ironic) truth is the fact that preservation and cutting edge will constantly be in tension.

As an alternative of giving an individual the platform to present that/those person's perspective and talk differing with Sheldrake, they chose to take his talk down. The opposite from the concept of a platform for cutting edge ideas, thought, and presentation. As well negative for them. Sad for me and all the other individuals who've gained wisdom, understanding, and insights from Tedx talks and those we
have encountered on that platform.

How come you believe some women look for out relationships with men in jail, plenty
of them imprisoned for daily life? Brutal serial killers like the Night
Stalker have experienced ladies seek him out for any relationship and possible
relationship. How come some girls do this? Can it be simply because they believe they
will be needed in a drastic way by an imprisoned man, a lot more than a free man?

I realize everything you are saying but maintain in mind there are a lot of
ways you are able to get funding to your training with out likely
straight to loans 1st, also not all degrees are valuable,?
I meet people that work with me with AA,AS,BS degrees in FedEx, i operate and visit school but
this guys are accomplished with college, but note that they have useless degrees,
social science, liberal arts, Chicano research, And so on.
.. they in fact regret gonna college now they may be spending a
good deal income. but I understand everything you are declaring
