Carnegie, Greenaway 2014 nominations announced
The CILIP Carnegie and Greenaway medals are two of the UK’s most prestigious awards for distinguished writing and illustration in children’s books. The nominations for both awards have been released on their website, and over the next few months these awesome children’s books will be judged, long listed, short listed and finally, the winning books will be selected in June 2014.
The Carnegie and Greenaway medals are often referred to as the ‘one you want to win’! The Carnegie Award was established in 1936, in honour of Andrew Carnegie, a renowned Scottish philanthropist who established more than 2800 libraries across the world in his lifetime. The Kate Greenaway medal was established in 1955 and honours outstanding illustrations in children’s literature. Both prizes include a donation of $500 worth of books to a library of the winning author’s choice.
