Circle by Jeannie Baker wins at the Whitley Awards.

Circle by Jeannie Baker has been selected to receive a certificate of commendation in the "Illustrated Children’s Book" category of the 2017 Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales’s Whitley Awards.

The Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales’s Whitley Awards are a tribute to Gilbert Whitley, an eminent Australian ichthyologist. The awards are presented annually for outstanding publications (in printed or electronic form) that contain a significant amount of information relating to the fauna of the Australasian region. These publications may be highly technical works or they may be for wider and more general readership. On the recommendations of the Whitley Review Committee, a number of publications are selected for presentation of a Certificate of Commendation at the Whitley Awards ceremony on Wednesday 4 October 2017.
