IBBY Honour List 2018

by | Jun 10, 2017 | IBBY NEWS

IBBY Honour List 2018 is open for nominations

Each IBBY member country is invited to make one nomination in each of three categories: Writing, Illustration and Translation. The books nominated need to have been first published during the last three years, ie in 2015, 2016 or 2017.

In the writing and illustration categories, the books should be considered to be characteristic of their country and suitable to be recommended by IBBY for publication in other languages. This can be interpreted very broadly and there is such a wealth of possibilities. The IBBY UK committee would like to consider putting forward books that represent the diversity of the UK.

IBBY members may make two suggestions in each category: Writing, Illustration and Translation. Please send these to annlazim@googlemail.com by 30th June 2017.

A shortlist will be made by members of the IBBY UK committee. These books will then be discussed at a meeting on Monday 17th July from 1.30pm onwards at the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education, Webber Street, London SE1 8QW when the selections to go forward to IBBY International will be made. All IBBY UK members are welcome to attend this meeting. Please let Ann Lazim annlazim@googlemail.com know if you plan to attend.
