The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK's oldest awards for children's books.
With the Spring comes the awards season with shortlists announced for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medals, for the UKLA Book Awards (often called the teacher's Carnegie) for the SLA's own Information Book Awards, for the FCBG Children's Book Award and for the 'NIBBLES' (the Book Industry awards) and the winners of the Blue Peter, the Guardian, the Waterstones and the Costas have all been announced.
The Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are awarded every year to books for young people by Cilip, the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals.
