Announcement 2020 live on March 31

A name you know and love…or a complete surprise? On March 31, the ALMA jury will finally announce the recipient (or recipients) of the 2020 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Follow our live stream of the announcement from Astrid Lindgren’s home at Dalagatan in Stockholm.

The broadcast starts on March 31 at app. 12:50 pm CEST.

About the announcement
After months of careful deliberation, on Tuesday, March 31, the jury will hold its last and decisive meeting. Shortly thereafter, jury chair Boel Westin will announce the name of the 2020 ALMA laureate and will read the citation of the jury. Jury Member Elina Druker will deliver a longer presentation of the laureate and we will also hear from Sweden’s Minister for Culture and Democracy, Amanda Lind. Astrid Lindgren's great-grandson, who's also a member of our jury, will guide you through the programme.

Please note! The current situation means that we need to follow official guidelines restricting the size of social gatherings. As a result, the jury will make its announcement without an audience in the room.
