Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 Australian Educational Publishing Awards were held online in September. Celebrating its 28th year, the awards evening brought together publishers to acknowledge excellence and award businesses going above and beyond for the advancement of students. Organised by the Australian Publishers Association, the prestigious annual Educational Publishing Awards reward excellence and innovation in the publishing industry. Awards are judged by a panel of peers, and each year teachers and booksellers vote for the coveted Publisher of the Year award.
For the fourth consecutive year, PLD was awarded Australian Primary Publisher of the Year! In a field of large Australian and international companies, we were thrilled that our comparatively small organisation has received such a prestigious industry award.

This award is further recognition that PLD resonates with teachers. The consultancy services we provide keeps us in touch with what busy schools are requiring: Simple, time-efficient resources that ultimately enhance literacy levels. PLD’s publishing point of difference is that the range of programs have been designed by specialists (speech pathologists and occupational therapists) for generalists (educators). We strongly believe this is integral to producing results.
This was PLD’s fourth time entering the awards and we couldn’t be happier with the result. This award would not be possible without you, our amazing and supportive community who voted for us. For that, we would like to say a massive thank you!
In recent years, PLD has gone from strength to strength, which you can read more about in the graphic below.
