The announcement of this year’s recipient can be followed live on our web, starting 12.50 on Tuesday. It will be followed by a short presentation of the recipient by one of the jury members. Watch jury member Elina Druker’s presentation of last year’s recipient Guus Kuijer here.

Like the previous years, the announcement in Vimmerby will be streamed by link to the international children’s book fair in Bologna, which is very special for us this year as Sweden as the first Nordic country is guest of honor. The Swedish Minister for Culture, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth will participate in the ALMA press conference, something we of course are very happy for.
