Laureates

The prize is awarded to authors, illustrators and narrators, but also to people or organizations that work to promote reading. Over the years the prize winners have shown a great variety in style, temper and choice of subject. But they have also something in common that unites them with Astrid Lindgren's values and deeds of life: solidarity with the children.

We are currently developing our website and this page contains limited information. In the meantime, we are happy to provide you with any information about the laureates. Welcome to contact us.
