The award week is getting closer and at the same time the process for next year’s nominations proceeds. The deadline to nominate candidates for the 2014 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award is May 15. In January, the award office sent out invitations to nominating bodies around the world to propose candidates for the award.
After May 15, when the suggestions arrive from nominating bodies, the award office compiles the nomination material. The jury then begins to read, check and request additional information from the nominating bodies.
By September suggested nominations have been checked and approved and the list for 2014 will be announced at the international book fair in Frankfurt, October 9-13.
