Queensland Premier's Literary Awards

The Queensland Premier's Literary Awards was an Australian literary award inaugurated in 1999 and disestablished in 2012. It was a leading literary award within Australia, with $225,000 in prize money over 14 categories making it one of Australia's richest prizes, top categories offered up to $25,000 for 1st prize.

The awards were established by Peter Beattie, the then Premier of Queensland in 1999[1] and abolished by Premier Campbell Newman, shortly after winning the 2012 Queensland state election.[2]

In response, the Queensland writing community established the Queensland Literary Awards to ensure the Awards continue. [3] The judging panel remained the same, and University of Queensland Press agreed to continue to publish the winners of the Emerging Queensland Author Manuscript Award and the Unpublished Indigenous Writer, David Unaipon Award.[4]

The Queensland Literary Awards Inc Committee oversees the newly formed Queensland Literary Awards. The 2012 QLA were presented at the State Library of Queensland on 4 September 2012. Go to [1] for details of the 2012 shortlists and winners. The QLA Inc Committee established a new program the Queensland Writers Fellowships which now provides $15,000 grants to three Queensland writers each year. The inaugural Fellowships will be awarded on 10 July 2013. The 2013 Queensland Literary Awards will be awarded at a ceremony at State Library of Queensland on 4 September 2013.
