Chrisopher Cheng Receives SCBWI Award

December 7, 2010

Australian children’s book author and Copyright Agency member Christopher Cheng recently received the ‘Member of the Year’ award from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

The award is in recognition of Christopher’s contribution as the SCBWI’s Co-Regional Coordinator for Australia – particularly his work in creating a presence for the Australian and New Zealand chapters in the local children’s book market.

This the second consecutive year that Christopher has received an industry award for service to the children’s book industry. Last year the NSW Children’s Book Council honoured him with the Lady Cutler Award for his contributions.

Christopher is the author of over 25 children’s books and is also an animator. For more information visit
