‘We are cheering books today,’
declared Robin Ince before announcing the winners of the Carnegie and Greenaway Medals, along with the inaugural winners of the Amnesty CILIP Honour.
Chris Riddell, Sarah Crossan, Robin Tulley and Ross Collins huge congratulations to you.
Congratulations to Chris Riddell, winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal for The Sleeper and the Spindle.
Congratulations to Sarah Crossan for One, winner of the Carnegie Medal.
Each year two special commendations, the Amnesty CILIP Honour, will be awarded to the author and illustrator of two books; one from each shortlist, that most distinctively illuminates, communicates, or celebrates our personal rights and freedoms.
The UK’s oldest and most prestigious children’s book awards, the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Medals are awarded annually by school librarians. Often described by authors and illustrators as ‘the one they want to win’ – they are the gold standard in children’s literature. Our successful Shadowing scheme engages thousands of children and young people in reading the books on the shortlist every year.
