Hans Christian Andersen Awards 2024

The Hans Christian Andersen Award is the highest international distinction given to authors and illustrators of children's books. Given every other year by IBBY, the Hans Christian Andersen Awards recognize lifelong achievement and are given to an author and an illustrator whose complete works have made an important, lasting contribution to children's literature.

The 2024 Hans Christian Andersen Award is now underway. 
The list of candidates for the award will be presented at the IBBY Bologna Children’s Book Fair on 6–9 March 2023. In the meantime, we invite you to get to know the international jury of children’s book specialists who have undertaken the difficult task of selecting the winners.
