In 2007 the CILIP Carnegie Medal celebrates its 70th Anniversary and the CILIP Kate Greenaway its 50th.
To mark the Anniversaries, we’re organising a national celebration and we’re inviting everybody to get involved!
We’ve created a brand new Living Archive, which contains images and information about all of the past winning books and the results of the national vote to find out the public’s favourite Carnegie and Greenaway winners of all time were announced on 21st June 2007 at the British Library. You can tell us about your favourites here.
Carnegie and Greenaway Anniversary celebrations will continue throughout 2007!
There’s lots happening including: tagging and reviewing online, a range of anniversary reading resources, free promotional material and downloads, the group leaders message board and more . .
The lists of past Medal winners provide a roll call of the great children's writers and illustrators of 20th and 21st centuries and highlight the UK's strong tradition of quality writing and illustration for young people.
