The Australian Fairy Tale Society is delighted to honour


as winner of the 2020 AFTS Award.

Congratulations Lorena!

We are so glad to be able to acknowledge Lorena’s many gifts though this Award: her unique artwork, her wonderful and enchanting collaboration with Kate Forsyth, her willingness to share her art in AFTS events, and her insights and expertise to the general community, as well as all the wonderful and life-enhancing connections she have made within our Society.

All of our nominees, including authors Serene Conneeley and Juliet Marillier, add lustre to our community by their many successes, and all of us in the fairy tale community have been enriched by their contributions.  We thank you all most sincerely for what you have already given us and all that you will create in the future.

The Award ceremony will take place on the final session of the conference, on Monday 8 June 2020, when you will all have a chance to see the gorgeous permanent Award created by Spike Deane.  But to do that you will need to register for the conference!
