2016 Hans Christian Andersen Awards

The shortlist for the 2-16 Hans Christian Andersen Awards has been announced.

The criteria used to assess the nominations included the aesthetic and literary quality as well as the freshness and innovation of the body of work; the ability to see the child’s point of view and to stretch their curiosity; and the continuing relevance of the works to children and young people. The Award is based on the entire body of work.

Here are the authors and illustrators on the shortlist:
