NED KELLY AWARDS 2021 - WINNERS

July 28, 2021

THE NED KELLY AWARDS

The Australian Crime Writers Association (ACWA) has announced the WINNERS for the 2021 Ned Kelly Awards.

Established in 1995, the Ned Kelly Awards are Australia’s oldest, most prestigious awards honouring crime fiction and true crime writing. The ACWA reported a record number of entries for the awards in their 26th year, with 149 entries, a 50% increase on previous years.

ACWA chair Robert Goodman said the increase demonstrates that Australian crime writing and reading has ‘never been stronger’. ‘This is not just evident in the number of submissions but in the diversity and quality of the entries,’ Goodman added.
