The Nita B Kibble Literary Awards for Women Writers recognises the work of an established author and the work of a first time published author.

Gail Jones is the 2012 winner of the Kibble Literary Award, worth $30,000, for her novel Five Bells.

Favel Parrett received the $5,000 Dobbie Literary Award for a first time published author for her novel Past the Shallows.

Chair of the judging committee Professor Robert Dixon of the University of Sydney said the standard of this year’s entries was exceptionally high. “The winning novels are compelling and illustrate the high quality and value of contemporary Australian literature,” he said.
