Carnegie Longlist

CILIP announced the longlists for the Carnegie and Greenaway Medals today.

These are literally LONG lists. Such long lists indeed it must be very galling for authors, publishers and agents to find their books omitted.

The shortlists will be announced on 19th March 2013. The winners for The CILIP Carnegie Medal and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal will be announced on 19th June 2013 at a ceremony in London.

History Is Made


In an historic announcement which marked a unique moment in the 75 year history of the UK's oldest and most prestigious children's book award, the 2012 CILIP Carnegie Medal was earlier this week awarded to Patrick Ness for his novel, "A Monster Calls" (Walker Books).

Not only was this the second consecutive Carnegie Medal for Patrick Ness (a feat only achieved once before, in 1979 & 1980 by Peter Dickinson); but for the first time ever, the same book has also won the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal - sister award to the Carnegie Medal - with Jim Kay taking the prize for his haunting illustrations for "A Monster Calls".



Patrick Ness - Carnegie Acceptance Speech

It will have been noticeable that the blog has been silenced for a few days. This was due to a combination of OFSTED and concern for my mother, who is in hospital.

I haven't had a moment to read Patrick Ness's Carnegie acceptance speech (an edited version of which was published by The Guardian) until this morning.

It was a great speech.
