16 days left and counting down for entry into the CYA Competition 2010

13 June 2010 


Do you realise that there are only 16 days left to get your CYA Conference competition entry in? 30th June is just around the corner!


Scary thought? 

Don’t panic, its all done electronically now and its as simple as sitting at your desk, and going into the CYA website, on the competition page, choosing if you are published or unpublished - and following the prompts through to your entry form. You even attach your entry to the form and submit there - easy.

Further away is CYA Conference and Hatchlings at 83 and 83 days  - but the time is moving along fast! Get your registration forms in ASAP so that you get the sessions you really want to attend. Reminder that both in 2008 and 2009 this conference sold out - so don’t leave it till the last minute.

CYA updated the web site today - added more people into the SUCCESS page, added an editor to the conference registration form, welcome again to Kristina Schulz from UQP who will join us again. So exciting for us to be having so many editors on site for the day, and for the Hatchlings program too.


Until next time - CYA later!

Program released and Welcome to CYA Conference ~ Hatchlings

3 June 2010 

Registrations for CYA Conference opened on 2nd June, and already places are starting to be booked. The program is packed with interesting  workshops and masterclasses or industry related topics, and is sure to entertain you all dat - and yes it will be a long one as we try and cram as much in from 8am till 6pm!


The payment plans continue for those who need to use them, just do your registration, pay a deposit and regularly transfer your money. Make sure it is all paid before conference please, and invoices and receipts will only be issued when it is paid in full.


We celebrate that CYA Conference ~ Hatchlings is taking place on 5th September as day 2 of the CYA Conference. This is aimed at 8 - 18 year olds, out published authors/illustrators of tomorrow, and we are excited that this idea has became a reality. We do know it is fathers day - and are happy for the dads (and mums in that capacity) to come on in with their child/ren who is/are attending Hatchlings, and share a ‘cuppa’ with us as we launch this fantastic day!


The competition closes on 30th June so a reminder to all to get those entries in - the clock is ticking.... 26 days to due date. 


CYA later!
