Past Honorary Mentions

Judging for Undiscovered Voices is a difficult process that often involves long passionate debates about who to include in the final anthology. The judges endeavour to create an anthology that showcases a wide variety of voices and genres. Check out what happened to the previous finalists after the anthology.

Each year there are always more worthy entries than there is room in the anthology. Below is a list of the writers and illustrators cited by the judging panel for the recognition of an honorary mention. The list is alphabetical with the year of the anthology at the end of each entry.
