Gathering stories of the Greater Pacific - going global

FNWF captures the rich cultures, intellect, and story heritage of First Nations peoples in the Greater Pacific and beyond. These peoples meet at a celebratory Festival, in Townsville Queensland Australia each year.

First Nations Book Awards

Australia, Torres Strait Islands, Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Papua, New Zealand, and the islands within Polynesia, Micronesia, Melanesia:  from each region and each year, two writers will be awarded with a prize of up to A$5,000. 

Please Donate

Donations are used to ensure that writers and creators are rewarded for their cultural and intellectual creativity, to give them the time to reflect and write by the receipt of the Awards. And to celebrate the awards at the First Nations Writers Festival – together.

All Directors and Members of the Circles of Knowledge are volunteers.
