The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award is the world’s largest award for children’s and young adult literature.
Proposed candidates may include authors, illustrators and storytellers whose work for children and young adults is of the highest artistic quality, and which echoes the same profound spirit of humanity that characterized Astrid Lindgren’s own work. Candidates may also be individuals, organizations or projects whose exceptional work has promoted reading for children and young adults.
The award is for an entire body of work, not an individual piece. The award cannot be given posthumously.
Please fill in this form to submit a candidate for consideration. IBBY Canada’s Board will consider all submissions and select one candidate to put forward. IBBY Canada’s decisions will be final.
This form is due to IBBY Canada by March 20, 2021.
