This annual prize, generously funded by Nicholas Allan, author of The Queen’s Knickers, is awarded to an outstanding children’s original illustrated book for ages 0-7.
It will recognise books that strike a quirky, new note and grab the attention of a child, whether this be in the form of curiosity, amusement, horror or excitement.
The work should be a single, illustrated volume, in book form. It can be imaginative or factual e.g. a counting book.
The work may be any combination of words and/or pictures, or just pictures (and in any physical format including pop ups, flap books and board books).
The prize will be awarded to an author or authors who is/are credited on the title page and are real people. For works illustrated by named illustrator/illustrators, the judges may divide the prize between the author/authors and illustrator/illustrators at their discretion.
We cannot accept entries that are only available in e-format or that are self-published or where the author has contributed or paid for the costs of publishing.
Submissions must be made by the print publisher and publishers may submit no more than three titles per imprint.
