The jury calls for nominations

The jury has selected organisations and institutions with good knowledge of authors, illustrators, oral storytelling and activities that promote reading in their countries or regions. All countries are invited to nominate in order to promote their literature for young readers and to stimulate reading promotion. The jury and previous laureates also have the right to suggest candidates. It is not possible to nominate oneself for the award, or to apply for it.

Nominating bodies can be international, national or regional organisations such as research institutes connected to children’s literature and projects to encourage reading, children’s book institutes, author and illustrator organisations, children’s departments and literary centres at national libraries.
