Literature Award for Antarctic Arts Fellow

Tasmanian children’s writer and illustrator, Coral Tulloch, has won the Wilderness Society’s 2004 Environment Award for Children’s Literature, for her book Antarctica — Heart of the World. The book was inspired by Coral’s life-changing trip to Antarctica in 1999, as part of the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship program. Former Parliamentary Secretary for the Antarctic, Dr Sharman Stone, described the book as one that takes the reader on a fascinating and informative journey to the last great wilderness on Earth.
