Aurealis Awards Judging Application
Please read the information about judging requirements carefully before submitting your application as we cannot make exceptions to these.

It is vital that judges be able to work as part of a team and meet stringent deadlines. Most of the judges’ discussions are conducted via a private online forum or email.

All judges must be willing and able to read electronic entries in either mobi or epub format, which we accept in all categories. 

Judges from previous Aurealis Awards processes are welcome – indeed encouraged – to re-apply. But, in the interests of transparency and impartiality, no one may judge the same category for more than two consecutive years, and a break of two consecutive years is required before a judge can reapply to be a judge in that particular category again.
