Jan Michał Pieńkowski, illustrator, writer and designer, born 8 August 1936, died 19 February 2022.
He was presented with the BookTrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019.
It’s the week of the longlists. First the Carnegie & Greenaway and now the longlist for the 2022 Klaus Flugge Prize, one of ACHUKA favourite awards.
Established in 2016, the Klaus Flugge Prize is given to the most promising and exciting newcomer to children’s picture book illustration. It honours Klaus Flugge, founder of publisher Andersen Press and a supremely influential figure in picture books.
Flavia Z Drago was the 2021 winner with Gustavo the Shy Ghost, and returns this year as a judge alongside Emily Gravett; Martin Salisbury, Professor of Illustration at Cambridge School of Art in Anglia Ruskin University; and Nikki Bi, Co-Founder and the Beyond Books Lead at Civic Square in Birmingham. The panel will be chaired by Julia Eccleshare, director of the children’s programme of the Hay Festival.
For the second consecutive year, over fifty books were submitted and from 34 different publishing houses, proof of publishers’ commitment to commissioning and developing new illustrators. 24 have made it onto the longlist.
The shortlist will be announced on 18 May 2022 and the winner will be revealed in September.
From the list of nominations announced last November, we now have confirmation of the titles longlisted for the two most prestigious UK children’s book awards, the Carnegie and the Greenaway, now renamed the Yoto Carnegie Greenaway Awards 2022, following the signing of a three year sponsorship agreement with the makers of Yoto, a screen-free speaker.
Congratulations to all the authors and illustrators, who must now wait another month for the shortlists to be announced.

Call for entries: 2022 Henrietta Branford Writing Competition
For young people who enjoy writing stories!
Finish a story started by Branford Boase Award winner
The Henrietta Branford Writing Competition, the annual competition for young people which runs in conjunction with the Branford Boase Award, is now open.
The Henrietta Branford Writing Competition aims to find and encourage writers of the future, something Henrietta Branford was always keen to do.
Anyone under the age of 19 can enter the competition. Entrants are invited to finish this story begun by last year’s Branford Boase Award winner, author of thrilling fantasy adventure Orphans of the Tide, Struan Murray:
Dad’s gone out for the night and I’m alone at home for the first time. I should be doing homework, but I’ve got the television on, staring out the window into the garden. The moon paints the swaying oak tree silver, a cat stalks mice from its branches. There’s fireworks crackling up on the hill; green, red, purple.
It happens all at once. The television stalls, paused on the newsreader. The oak stops swaying, the cat is frozen mid-pounce. A firework hangs in the sky. I stand up, search about, feel my heart race. I look out the window, and I spot it, beyond the bushes.
Something is moving in the garden.
Competition judge, Prue Goodwin has this special advice for young entrants, ‘After you have read the starter passage, take some time to think. This writing is not a piece of schoolwork, it won’t be marked by the judges, just read to be enjoyed as a good story.
Read the starter again. Don’t go for the obvious. Remember, you are in charge of choosing how you carry on with your story. Your imagination can go in any direction you want. Try to make the final version as original as possible. The ‘starter’ is there to help you get going, so use it to take your ideas wherever you want. Ask yourself, “Will my story grab a judge’s attention? Make them laugh or cry?” Do you want to entertain, provoke or scare your readers? Your story can be exciting, funny, moving, adventurous, frightening – whatever you want. Enjoy writing, and good luck!’
Each story should be no longer than 1000 words, should have a title and connect to the starter paragraph. All entrants must live in the UK and be under 19 years of age.
Please send your stories to: email@example.com
Please mark your entries Henrietta Branford Writing Competition 2022 and be sure to include your name, address, contact details and age. It would be a good idea to give it a title as well. Teachers, if you are collating children’s entries, please include your name, the name and address of your school and your contact details as well as the names and ages of the young authors. If you can send it as a Word document, that would be great, but otherwise you can cut and paste it into your email to me. Please do not send as a PDF.
The winners will receive signed copies of each of the books shortlisted for the 2022 Branford Boase Award.
The closing date for the competition is Sunday 22 May 2022.
The longlist for the 2022 Branford Boase Award can be revealed today. Set up in memory of award-winning author Henrietta Branford and her editor Wendy Boase, one of the founders of Walker Books, the Branford Boase Award is given annually to the author of an outstanding debut novel for children. It has a notable record in picking out the most talented authors at the start of their career. Past winners and shortlisted authors have included Siobhan Dowd, Meg Rosoff, Mal Peet, Frank Cottrell Boyce and Patrick Ness as well as Frances Hardinge, M G Leonard and Philip Reeve. Uniquely, the award also honours the editor of the winning title and highlights the importance of the editor in nurturing new talent.
This year a record number of books were submitted: 69 in total, from 30 publishers. Here are the 25 long listed titles. Congratulations to all authors and editors concerned.
The shortlist for the Award will be announced on Thursday 28 April 2022. and the winners (author and editor) will be presented with their awards on 14July 2022 at an award ceremony in London.
The Henrietta Branford Writing Competition, the annual competition for young people which runs in conjunction with the Branford Boase Award, will open on Monday 7 February 2022.
Submissions opened this week for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2022.
This is the seventh year of this influential award which is awarded to the most promising and exciting newcomer to children’s picture book illustration. The 2022 judging panel will be led by award-winning illustrator Emily Gravett. She is joined by Martin Salisbury, Professor of Illustration at Cambridge School of Art in Anglia Ruskin University; Nikki Bi, Beyond Books Lead, Civic Square; and the winner of the 2021 Klaus Flugge Prize, Flavia Z. Drago. Julia Eccleshare is chair of judges.
Publishers have until the closing date, midnight Monday 10 January 2022, to make their submissions. Eligible illustrators may have created book covers, or illustration for other media, or illustrated books in another genre – for example, poetry or fiction – but eligibility for the prize requires that this is their first picture book for children. The book should have been first published on a children’s list in the UK between 1 January and 31 December 2021. Books first published in another country must have been co-published in the UK within three months of the original publication date.

To mark Armistice Day, BookTrust is giving away three copies of I Saw A Beautiful Woodpecker, a recent ACHUKA Book of the Day
This week John Agard became the first poet to receive BookTrust’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The award celebrates the body of work of an author and/or illustrator who has made an outstanding contribution to children’s literature. The judges highlighted John’s persistence and creativity in championing and challenging the language norms that too often dominate literature and the curriculum, as well as his ability to connect with children.
On receiving the award, John Agard said, “It means a lot to be given this award by BookTrust – an organisation which treasures books and tries to make them part of a life-enhancing experience for a child. It excites me that I’m the first poet to win. I feel happy that I’ve stuck with this craft since I was a 16-year-old boy writing in a classroom in a Caribbean ex-colony. It’s not just me receiving this award, but all the people that inspired me. People like my teacher Father Maxwell, the people who published my books, those who contributed to my journey way back in the Caribbean, and John Arlott, the legendary cricket commentator who inspired me with his words.”
The judges for the 2021 BookTrust Lifetime Achievement Award were:
