2012 SCOTTISH CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARDS ~ SHORTLIST ANNOUNCEMENT

Run by Scottish Book Trust in partnership with Creative Scotland, the Scottish Children's Book Awards are Scotland's largest children's book awards, recognising excellence in Scottish writing and illustration for children across three age categories: Bookbug Readers (3-7 years), Younger Readers (8-11 years) and Older Readers (12-16 years).
The total prize fund is £12,000, with the shortlisted authors and illustrators receiving £500 per book, and the three overall winners receiving £3,000 per book.
The winner of each category is decided by Scottish children themselves, who will be reading the shortlisted books and voting for their favourite over the next seven months. The winners will be announced at a special award ceremony on World Book Day (7th March 2013) at the Caird Hall in Dundee.
