Alison Brumwell, Chair of the judging panels for both awards, said: ‘This year’s outstanding shortlists clearly demonstrate the vision, vitality and depth of children’s publishing, including the emergence of small, independent publishers. Superb debuts take pride of place alongside established, well-known names, representing the very best in writing and illustration for children and young people. Challenging themes of bereavement, isolation, friendship and identity are treated with humanity and insight and in a range of distinctive written and illustrative styles.’

The winners of both Prizes for this year will be announced on Tuesday 18 June. Find out more about this year’s shortlist here.
