Explore the 2018 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards using our fun new augmented reality tool!

21 March 2019

The platform will let you preview content about our winning and shortlisted collection. The tool uses a mix of audiovisual elements, images and links which provide insights about the books, authors, illustrators and historians. The platform is now live.

There are two ways to access the experience:

Scan a book to unlock the content

  1. Grab a hardcopy of one of the 2018 winning or shortlisted books
  2. On your mobile phone or tablet go to pmla.awe.io
  3. Allow access to your camera and scan the book cover
  4. On the start page tap the ‘Explore’ button and follow the instructions to unlock the content

Explore the library without scanning a book

  1. On your mobile phone or tablet go to pmla.awe.io/showcase
  2. Select a book you’re interested in to play the content
  3. Follow the instructions to explore all 2018 winning and shortlisted books

The experience will be updated with the 2019 shortlists following their announcement later this year.
