The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK’s oldest and best-loved children’s book awards, recognising outstanding reading experiences created through writing and illustrations in books for children and young people. The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded to outstanding writing, and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded to outstanding illustration.
Judged solely by librarians, some of the past winners include Arthur Ransome, C.S. Lewis, Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman, Sally Gardner, Raymond Briggs, Shirley Hughes, Quentin Blake, Chris Riddell and many more.
