No Booktrust Early Years Awards Or Teeanage Prize This Year

From the Booktrust announcement:

As you will be aware, the last few months have been particularly challenging for Booktrust. Our new funding settlement with the Department for Education has allowed us to protect the universal offer of the national bookgifting programmes, but it has nonetheless forced us to undertake a thorough review of all of the prizes and projects in the Booktrust portfolio.

As a result of this review, we have taken the difficult decision not to run the Booktrust Early Years Awards or the Booktrust Teenage Prize in autumn 2011. Both of these prizes are incredibly important, highlighting and celebrating the best books for babies and toddlers and for teens, as well as being very dear to Booktrust. We have not taken these decisions lightly and we strongly intend to bring back both with a bang in the very near future.
