Julia Hale, Chair of the judging panels for both awards, said: ‘Through writing and illustration, the authors and artists offer children and young people stories of hope, discovery and understanding about themselves and the world they live in. There is a strong emphasis in the longlists on how young readers can navigate that journey, through relationships with families and friends and from learning more about themselves.’

The 2020 shortlists will be announced on 19 March, with the winners to be revealed on 17 June.
