Welcome to our Anniversary!
In 2017 the CILIP Carnegie Medal reaches its 80th year and the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal its 60th. To mark this, we are holding a retrospective that celebrates the best writing and illustration for children.
Join the Celebrations!
Throughout the year we will be updating the website with ideas, resources and activities to help shadowing groups and libraries to join in the celebrations.

Videos and extra online resources.
In addition, an anniversary party pack will be sent to all shadowing groups, public libraries and independent booksellers in time for the shortlist announcement day on 16th March 2017 – this will feature a large poster with all of the past winning books to put up in your library or classroom.
Join in the party on 19th June 2017 when we celebrate all of the past winning books at the CKG 2017 winner’s announcement party. Tune into the stream online on that day or create your own party at the same time.
Key dates will be 16th March 2017 and 19th June 2017 but we want the reading activity and celebrations to continue all though the year. Use the anniversary logo to use to brand your events in your school or library. Let us know what you are planning:
