Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award


  [IBBY Canada]

217-40 Orchard View Blvd.

Toronto ON M4R 1B9




The Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award was established in 1985 following the death of Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver, one of Canada's pre-eminent book illustrators. In her will, Cleaver left a fund of $10,000 dollars for an award to be given annually in recognition of outstanding artistic talent in a Canadian picture book. The recipient receives a cheque for $1,000 dollars and a certificate.

The Cleaver Award is administered by a committee of three members of the Canadian section of the International Board on Books for Young People. The recipient is a Canadian illustrator of a picture book published in Canada in English or French during the previous calendar year. To be eligible, the book must be a first edition and contain original illustrations by a Canadian illustrator. Proof of Canadian citizenship may be requested. All genres are considered: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, folk and fairy tales. If a book has been submitted in previous years, even if it was submitted in a different language, the book will not be eligible for consideration.
