Nomination process for 2012 – now open!

Before this year’s winner even is announced, we start working on 2012 … This is a way for the award office and the jury to be able to process all nominations in time for the announcement in March 2012.  

Over 400 expert organisations and institutions from all over the world are invited to suggest candidates for the 2012 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. These nominating bodies have been selected by the jury because of their extensive and in-depth knowledge of children’s and youth literature in their countries or region. Every country in the world may make a nomination in order to promote their children’s and youth literature and their efforts to stimulate reading. The jury also has the right to suggest candidates. No groups or individuals may apply for the prize or nominate themselves.

Nominations must be received by the award office by May 16 at the latest. The nominees will be be made official in October.
